2 Challenges completed!



This week's challenges at Collage Obsession and Inspiration Avenue were so enjoyable  to work on. With this being a holiday in Ontario,  I had extra time to create - and create I did.






Inspiration Avenue

This week's theme is "Which Road?" - based on that wonderful poem "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost.
As I am at a crossroads myself right now, this theme allowed me to see the choice I have to make visually: To retire or to keep working another year or two. It is a difficult choice , as money plays into the decision, as does my husband's health.
 I included some questions, based on a post by Collage Diva about crosses for Lent.

Both your pieces have a calm beauty to them. I often use my art journal to help me find answers or work out difficult decisions, I hope using yours helps you.

I like how you work with text - kind of mind mapping, particularly in the "road" piece, but generally as well.

I know this cross road as I keep trucking down the work one, pushing retirement age to new extremes! Just want to say I can relate! Your art speaks to me!!
