So it's wanderlust art journaling week 3, this week our tutor painted flowers using ink and paintbrush to draw, then colour in, then repurposing a printed photo image of the original in two additional pages. Most enjoyable, especially since I have never before considered using this style of painting in my journals.
The quote is from one of my many art journalling reference books, and it struck a chord. 'Home is not where you live it is where they understand you'. Despite being a migrant I am home and my adoptive country understands me and has made me welcome.
I thought a lot about 'where I belong' whilst doing these two pages, hence my second page with my Winston Churchill quote. It's a quote that makes me cry every time I read it these days....
The third page I decided to be a bit more personal and the story is just a few words about me...
and then bizarrely I have this song stuck in my head - 'I'd like to teach the world to sing...'
