Daily Journal Page Challenge...Day 150

Daily Journal Page Challenge...Day 150: And They Will Exist Again
I find myself thinking about my grandmother this month, more than I have in a long, long time. And as I was creating this collage, the objects I chose and the colors I used made me feel as if she was in the room with me. She loved antiques -- and blues, which matched her eyes. Mimi had a walnut plantation desk, which I inherited, and when I brought it into my home and opened its hutch doors, I found that the backs of the doors were covered in magazine pictures. She apparently placed items whose colors and shapes and designs interested her -- much like I do on my art studio bulletin board. I think that this studio photo of her from the early teens of last century reflects her natural beauty and her openness. I love you, Mimi, wherever you are...
