Summer of Colour - Week 5


If you haven't joined in the Summer of Colour yet, there's still time! Just click on the button in the sidebar and find out what it's all about. 

The colours for this week are red and yellow. I decided to combine this week's colours with the Art Journal Journey prompt for July - architecture.

Thinking about how a city changes over time led me to the idea that just as the skyline of a city changes, so does our internal architecture. 

The old buildings that stay around are our core values and beliefs, the things that stand the test of time. For me that would be my faith. 

Then there are the new buildings that spring up. Sometimes they stay around and at others they are demolished when they prove to be unsound. A bit like friendships that sometimes spring up but only last for a season. 

As neighbourhoods go through regeneration, so we sometimes pick up an old hobby or an old habit and renew it. 

So how's your internal skyline?

  6. This is a great page...lovely linework and color. I'm an almost empty nester, so my internal skyline is undergoing a bit of a renovation these days. Actually, I have rediscovered a few favorite activities that were put aside as my kids were growing up. The joy of that sort-of softens the blow of the empty house.
