Poetical me

Hello my lovelies.  How are you today? Hope life has been treating you well. Although it is summer here and needless to say it is steaming hot and unbearable most of times, I have been painting flowers. I decided to create journal pages using watercolor. to adorn my poems and affirmations.. It is going to be my visual poetry book. Why watercolor? Because it is a challenge for me. The right page was done using watercolor pencils but the left one was pure watercolor and it was fun to use brushes to paint. I finished altering a book and it took me three years to do that. I started in october 2015 and finished this year. It is a mix of everything but there is no watercolor in it so this one is just for my studies in watercolor. Therefore right now I am creating two books. One is just for cut and paste collages and oil pastels drawings and the other is just for watercolor and poetry/ affirmations. I don't know if I will have time from February on to dedicate myself to my watercolors because I will start work. I am on holidays. What a bless! Besides poetry is so demanding. It needs so much from me. Words are so complex to weave but I love them as much as I love painting, drawing and digital art.

I have just found a quote to celebrate poetry:

Poetry is plucking at the heartstrings, and making music with them. 
― Dennis Gabor

I have been plucking at my heartstrings with my art and poetry.
