Saving a Page

This small Moleskine spread was
the result of sketching a page
in a light thin pen line that
bothered me to no end---I wanted to '
to tear it out of the book but
that was not an option I could
accept--so decided to show my
frustration with it and made the spread.
I guess that's me inner self and
her quirks. While I may like
something in another's work, it
does not feel right to me in mine.
I will lay it to blame on being the
second and middle child and needing
to "show up" more to not feel lost....

This would be great with an audio supplement-- If I had a Hammer!

What an awesome save!!!!...although I thought the original was fine on its own LOLo :)

Think of it this way...the original was meant to be...all it "needed" was your recent follow up...a fine spread! Brilliant composition! :)

Audio supplement would be the page yelling 'OUCH!'

This is really, really funny!! I'm laughing so hard, because that's exactly the way I feel about a lot of my art stuff!!

This is wonderful!!! I'm sure we can all agree but you have encouraged us all to look for the "save" in the disasters! Thank you!

I loved that spread in your Moleskine. I have some in my sketchbook that could use some saving.

I love your style! (I've felt the same toward certain non-watercolor paper journals I've worked in.)
