You are not alone...

This week I did a page inspired by one of Jeanne Oliver's paintings. You can see more of her works and class details here. .Though I'm a girl who is after bright colors I love the subtle tones that Jeanne uses in her work.
                        "You Are Not Alone in Nature."
I tried the lettering with a calligraphy pen and ink for the first time. Need to practice more with it.
 This page was done in this new handmade journal made out of Strathmore drawing paper. This is the cover page and I still  need to do more work on it. 
This week I also made one more journal as a birthday gift for one of my son's friends. 

Linking this page to PPF and Art Journal Everyday.
Thank you
