"Forty Days" spread in my moleskin journal, done on September 13th, while thinking about my friends in Colorado dealing with the floods. I find it remarkably synchronistic that I seem to run across just the right scrap of photograph to invoke a 'feeling' in my journal. The two children, from a circa 1920s image I have, appear stunned and woe-begone. I think that's how I would feel if I was dealing with uncontrollable weather issues. I also used charcoal pencil and watercolors.
By the way, I am pleased to note that one of my Colorado friends will be publishing this image in an upcoming issue of 'Pasticcio' magazine. Thanks, Sarah!
