My Generation

It has been said that what you love in your youth stays with you.
I loved the 60s and 70s (and the 50s too...yes, I am an oldie but goodie!) and I reflect it in my art.

I had so much fun creating the two page spread seen above. I was listening to a mixed CD of 60s music at the time. Music is a must when I am making art. It allows me to tune out distractions and focus on creating.
The two stamps (a likeness of Bob Dylan, and Give Up War For Lent) were hand-carved during my Zen period.

Talkin' 'bout my generation...(that's me around 1972!)

Does your art reflect the things you loved in your youth?

1972. Geez that was a long time ago. Who knew we'd still be icreating and kicking up a fuss when the need arises? Wow!

Ellen...oh yeah, '72 was a LONG time ago...whew! Thankfully we still have some of that hippie spirit left in us!!

Glad you enjoyed the journal pages. I do plan to post more in the future!

For some reason I woke up this morning singing "Talkin' 'bout my Generation!" Just thought I'd mention it! :o)

Marita - I can't begin to tell you the countless times I have thought of "flying over you" in Amsterdam -- if only we had the internet back then and we had connected! So close yet so far away!!! Six months in Germany - what a time we could have had together!!!
