Mountains

I look up to the mountains does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1,2 (NLT)

I began today’s page, Mountains, with no ideas.

Paint? Watercolor Markers? Inktense pencils again? Collage?

I looked through a folder of cut-out magazine pictures, and inspiration came. I did not document the early stages of work, but I began with the large mountain at the top. From there I cut various mountain ranges from scenes and began assembling them like a puzzle, working from the top down.

A flow developed resulting in this.

Next I added a strip down the left side, title at the top, and John Muir quote at the bottom

I cut and added bits to the side for more blended color. I thought this was the finished piece.

But, wait! There’s more! Look closely at the sky where there is textured white paint. Also see if you can tell where I squeezed in a final mountain piece.

THIS is the finished page, and it is one of my absolute favorites. I was so excited about it that I did not even notice my daughter taking a video of it coming together.

I am grateful to have made this project a priority this month. Each day brings new insight and anticipation for what is to come. It is kind for my heart.

What do you do that is kind for your heart, Dear Reader? Feel free to share! I am curious.
