Art Journal Journey



Over on Art Journal Journey the subject for the month is 'Landscape Within Me' so here is my first go at it. 

I thought about what it would look like if there was a garden in my head. What does my interior landscape look like?

I came to the conclusion that it would be a bit of a mix. There are some parts that would be like mature trees - those parts that have been developing since childhood (my temperament), skills that I've been using for a long time such as knitting. There would be lots of different types of plants because I enjoy lots of different things. I would like to think that there would be fruit. A life that doesn't produce fruit is surely wasted. And seedlings as new things start to grow and develop, just pushing up through the soil of my imagination.

So what's it like inside your head? Pop on over to Art Journal Journey to see some other interior landscapes.
