I'm trying to be positive about my situation and have started this journal to record my thoughts, feelings and affirmations.. I went to a weekend of workshops with Dina Wakley at Art from the Heart a few months ago. She encouraged us to draw our own portraits, (not very good ones in my case) which incorporates my own drawings with some of the poetry words she gave us to use on our Poetry in Motion books. I've nearly finished that too and will put that in a later post.
My writing on this page reads...... I want to be independent and not reliant on anyone else. I need to stand on my own two feet and pay my own way. I want to be in a happy place, happy in life, interacting socially, being with friends creating art and being at Peace with myself. I drew the face on a piece of spent tumble drier sheet which I cut out and stuck to my page with PVA. That way I retained the see through quality so you can still see the page beneath. I've added more words to the page since I took this photo, FOCUS ON WHO YOU WANT TO BE, NOT ON WHO YOU WERE! Thank you for looking. xxxx
