Journal Pg 11 ~ BALANCE

After one of the busiest and fullest weeks in a long time, I took the morning to just paint......paint for me, paint to regroup.......paint for balance in my life again :)
I just saw a post reminding me of the Illustration Friday theme this week! 'Unbalanced' I think I shall use this for that also :)

This is sadly, going to be a 'post and run'.......I'm off to a concert with my daughter in law and granddaughter! We're going to see Transiberian Orchestra!

I'm looking forward to this concert so much and I'll report in tomorrow :)
I'm also hoping to get busy visiting your blogs soon too! I've been terrible at doing this and I'm sorry.

Hoping you all have enjoyed a wonderful weekend!

Sounds like a great way to regroup after a busy week! That concert would be a great one to see... let us know how fantastic is was! :)

love your balancing woman...can you say more about what is helping her to find balance...what it is she is trying to balance in her life/your life? I am curious...I love the colors and her slightly perplexed/distracted expression...that's what it looks like to me...I just want to know what's her story?

she would be a great prompt for 365 days of prompts on

I found your link on lisa's blog (groggy froggy) glad to meet you.
