Art Journaling You Otter

Art Journal page painting of an otter

I have been receiving several messages lately telling me what I ought to do with my art.  It got me thinking over the past few years of being online just how many people have offered me unsolicited, and at times seeming mean spirited, advice.  You should know that even these e-mails center around the fact that I am free to do what I want in my journal.  I usually listen to the advice then do what I want anyway.

Tragedy struck about 10 minutes into the show this week as Boy2 discovered a Japanese fishing float that my mother brought back from Hawaii 30 years ago.  If you’re not familiar, these are glass balls made in Japan that break free from the fishing nets and float out to sea.  Many of them float for dozens of years before washing ashore.  He picked it up and tried to bounce it before anyone could get to him.  It’s just stuff, though.  We enjoyed it for a long time.
