One Photo and Twenty-One Words: Art Journal Page

Thinking about whether I successfully guide my girl, 
wondering if what I say sinks in,
I work it out through art.

Amy said...

Oh, never a truer word said Karen! Love that you are expressing your thoughts through art Rinda :)

A great way to express these thoughts,Rinda.

Karen said...

I'm a firm believer that you may not know the impact of your guidance until much later, but I'm sure it's sinking in. I love this page, and would like to know more about how you created it.

Louise said...

It's hard work and a worry being a parent...great art page x

Sian said...

..and that's a very good way to do it.

I'm with Karen - you just never know when in the future something you've said might suddenly make a whole lot of sense

Sheena said...

Beautiful page ... and as one whose daughter is through and out the other side into fully fledged adulthood, I am amazed how much of my homespun wisdom shared with her in teenage years is reflected back to me now :).

Melissa said...

Wonderful page & 20 word description!

Jo Murray said...

Your love for your children shines through, and you are a wonderful role model Rinda.

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Ah yes, those are some very poignant twenty words, my friend. It does sink in, on some level, so keep at it! xo

Carola Bartz said...

Truthful words... and we can only hope for the best.
Beautiful art, Rinda!

Lesley G said...

A very good question - only time will tell!

Gail said...

Wonderful artwork and I'm glad you have your art to help you through life.

Lizzie said...

Oh, I recognise that feeling... I ask myself the same questions all the time.
I am sure that your great example and hard work will inspire your lovely girl and she will make the right decisions on the whole. We can't live our children's lives for them - we just have to do our best as parents, try to recognise when to let them try for themselves and trust them to follow our example.

Beautiful journal page, Rinda!

Sandie said...

Beautiful page, beautiful words..

Miriam said...

A very beautiful page and yes it does go in and is amazing when you hear your words reflected back to you.

Missus Wookie said...

Oh yes! I'm there right now too.

S said...

I can certainly relate to this. Now if only I could create pretty pages like you do too.

Beverly said...

This is a gorgeous piece of art, Rinda! She hears you, she may not use it or believe it to be true for years but it makes an impact.
