Thou must gather thine own sunshine.
Nathaniel Hawthorne

The summer days have been perfect this month. Walking home from the grocery store, I admired the daisies and lavender in full bloom. These sights went into my journal pages. I used India ink, acrylics, watercolors, and chalks to color the pages.

Burrow a while and build, broad on the roots of things.

  1. I love the colors and illustration very much. As for the Hawthorne quote, it is something I've been contemplating a lot lately. I seem to be in a phase where I'm searching for something, but knowing it has to originate from me.

  2. Hi, Juana... What a lovely slice of sumer this is! VERY pretty, and very sweet too... I like the inky washes and softness of the chalk... the suggestion of things. The quotes are wonderful reminders too. It's good to catch up with you! I've been online less lately too, the past couple weeks especially as TJ & I enjoyed a staycation. We've been having such a good summer too, so we're outdoors a lot. Gotta grab summer while we can! ;) And guess what... I got a bike!! Will share more soon... and letter will on its way to you soon too! :) Happy Days ((HUGS))

  3. So lovely Juana! Thanks for sharing :)
