The story of my life.

Today, i put together different elements:  1)  tiny naive portrait, painted in acrylic on 360 gsm watercolor paper;  2)  a cut out from a magazine, figure of a tree; and  3)  text from an old book.

I painted this tiny naive portrait a week ago without any intention of creating it for my journal. I love it the way it is, so i did not get around to painting in some colors.

It's wonderful how the black and white theme appeared. I am truly enjoying this assembly of elements on a page. There's a bit of a mystery as to how they all come together in the end. At times, it's the color which guides you as to what to add next. At other times, it is the harmony of shapes.
