A View of Winter

I thought I would post this page from my journal. It's not quite where I want it to be, but I am practicing some new techniques. Over at Lindsay Ostrom's blog, she has a challenge of something in our home that is special and inspires us.

Well, mine isn't inside my home, but what I see when I look out my patio door. It's winter, so I wanted to capture what is outside during this time of year.
I found this quote and thought I would incorporate this into my art. I enjoy all the seasons, but winter is the precursor of spring and new life. I hope to add a few details to this journal page, but for now, I need to let it rest. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. love this Joan... especially the lettering... tee hee, great job! And i know how you feel in the dead of winter!

  2. Wow Joan! Your drawing is amazing - and that sentiment fits me to a tee! You are one talented lady my friend.



  3. This is very cool Joan! Love your pages! What a keepsake. The girls at WOYWW would love this too-they show a lot of journals like this. You should join in sometime! Thanks for stopping in to say HI-and oh-I love those red bird cards below too!!!

  4. This is wonderful, Joan! Something that I want so badly to try, but am scared to! Maybe you've inspired me to give it a go :) Thanks for your visits to my blog! You rock :)
