one hundred



Today would be my grandmother's 100th birthday, she has been gone from this world for three years next month.  She was strength, she was steadfast, she was determination, she was a rock for me.  She taught me the importance of connection between past and present, she taught me accepting faith.  She had reverence for nature; she was proud, but she walked in humility.  I look to her memory still, when I need strength, when I need perspective, when I need comfort and she is always there.


With so much gratitude,
Joanna

free art {Favorite Finds Friday}


What is a find?  Something you discover, or uncover, something new, unexpected, perhaps a thing sought after?  Something longed for or just happened upon.

The work here is a series of six tiny pieces; typed text collaged onto partial book covers.  These pieces happened fast, with no planning and in the face of feeling personally and creatively discouraged.  I made them on a Thursday evening two weeks ago.  My intention was to put all six out the following day for Free Art Friday.  But because of the circumstances of that day, only one piece went out, and I shared the final one today, the other four speckled in between, most not on a Friday. 

I hope they were found and appreciated; but regardless they helped me find and appreciate some bits of me.
