ARTISTS IN BLOGLAND

This is an art journal page I've been working on for some time. These things go in stages of coming back to before one finally comes to a sense of completion. The story behind this page has to do with a trip to Israel we made in June. I saw so many of these ladies all covered up in 90 to 100 degree weather outside walking. It certainly was an experience of another culture. The eyes on the right page I drew in my travel journal while there. Click on the picture to enlarge for much more detail. The dried flowers are from Israel and the two cards are scenes from there.

This post is linked to "Artists in Blogland" so if you click on the title above you can go see lots more fine artistic endeavors by a variety of artists.

I can't imagine wearing all those coverings, much less in those high temps. Nice pages.

Thanks Patti, I can't either, but I saw it, time and again. It was really hot in June.

Beautiful spread Coleen! I lived in Turkey when I was a child and remember seeing the veiled women there. Here in Colombia, I feel for the nuns because it is ALWAYS hot and humid. The headband on your lady is very cool.

Nice work - it's inspiring me to pull my journal to the top of the pile and begin working in it again!
