Another Art Journal page

I didn't want to post anything yesterday, with all the terrible news from Boston.
Today I have this page which started as a more angular design, got lost in the layers, took a very scary turn until finally ended in something I agreed with. Has a little collage rice paper:

Thanks for visiting, have a wonderful day ♥


  1. A sad but very beautiful face! <3

  2. We watched the news about Boston in Holland to. It made me get tears in my eyes. I'm a runner to and running must be something happy and sporty... I hope they will catch the one who did this.
    Youre painting is a bit said, i love the collors you used.
    Liefs, Melanie

  3. Beautiful portrait.

  4. Martha, I think she is stunning! I think she is one of my all time favorites of yours!! Well done ;o)
    My thoughts go out to all the victims in Boston!

  5. she looks amazing and really like a healing angel Martha!
    Thank you for your visit on my blog and the kind offer about the MOOs.
    I don´t think that it is necessary .. I make so much from this little pieces and have also a great stash of collected MOO(s) as I was in a little collaborative and swapping group .
    Thank you nevertheless for this kind offer!

  8. I love the way the different elements in your painting, Martha, and the rice paper gives it some nice depth. Blessings!

  9. She looks kind of pensive, maybe sad...perfect for the recent daily news. Lovely piece.

  10. Hi
