Swan mandala

Some art pages from this week.

A mandala and some art journal pages.

The second image was a prompt from a 30 days of journalling...paint the smell you associate with home.  I chose the smell of making jam in my grandma's kitchen.

I can see in my mind...the big jam pan filled to the brim with bubbling sugar and blackish-blue blaeberries.  Blaeberry is the Scots language version of blueberry.  We used to pick them in the woods...growing wild.

These days, we realise blueberries are a 'health' food, full of anti-oxidants and good for eye health!!

Its difficult to concentrate on this post as I am listening to Leonard Cohen songs and they are beautiful and distacting.

Bye for now.

Have a great week.

I had to get John to say blueberry but he says it differently from me or the way its written here lol says Blaeberry is more regional (up north possibly), its actually very interesting to hear how differently we say simple words lol

That spiral piece is truly entrancing June, I had to look away as it pulled me in and would not release me! lol
