My apologies for being completely flattened by a virus last week - I was reduced to lying on the sofa watching "Say Yes to the Dress" (our daughter is getting married), between extended naps. Not yet 100% and still resting a lot, but am getting back to something like normal. There do seem to be some nasty bugs around this winter, as well as the severe flu problems.
Anyway I made this before I got sick, in response to someone who was, um shall we say, being annoying. Or it could have been me being short-tempered, I admit it. Either way, I was trying to be very calm, sensible and grown-up while they weren't, leaving me struggling to "love my neighbour" as I should! As ever, such feelings found their way onto the pages of my journal.
You know by now how much I like Australian Aboriginal art, and I'd recently seen a painting done in blue dots on a deep blue background, so that was my starting point. One of my favourite Modigliani ladies got things started, but it didn't seem to need any more collage since I knew I wanted LOTS of dots.
