In anticipation of Winter Darkness I visit my Art Journal, and Death rides into the picture.
Every All Saint’s Day (the day we celebrate here), with the dark night of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos lurking, I go rather dark in my Art Journal. Though this year my dark page is paired with a page of painted bubbles that were done pre binding this book. That’s how it happens sometimes. I now call them Life Bubbles, hoping they will give balance somehow…
The entire page, created with white paint and charcoal marks, is created to finally house the card of death, O θάνατος, which is Greek for Death (pronounced than’-at-os). I have several of these cards laying around, since many years, and now this one has finally found a home:
O θάνατος! May you rest in peace!
If you’re out riding late, and feel a bit cold perhaps, I’m inviting you in so that you can sign up for the DIY Postcard Swap, print the Free Backsides and join in the fun (until Tuesday). Just because we’re having a Postcard Party around here and you should join too!
Wishing you a Creative November week!
