It all started with a weekly date with my friend Barb who lives in California. When we were 17, we used to sing, paint, and laugh daily. Now, 23 years later and a whole country between us, we don't talk nearly as often as we should.
The alternative? Together, we are creating an art journal that travels weekly from coast to coast. One week, she'll draw or paint something, then mail it. The next week, I'll draw or collage something and then mail it back. And on and on it goes.
It's not quite the same as being together and giggling ‘til dawn, but it is a great way to stay connected and keep the creative juices flowing. Above is my contribution to this week’s edition. In it, a blank page becomes a reminder for what’s possible. Not bad for turning a complaint into a commitment.
