To each his ground on which to flourish…

Writing in my art journal is getting more and more important to me these days. I’d like to share with you a page I created to commemorate a wonderful person who died of cancer  at the age of 47.  Despite the sad occasion, I managed to turn it into a bright and positive page, for that totally reflects his own state of mind.  The idea for this page has been slumbering in my mind ever since Dan died two years ago, but I’m so glad I finally created this spread, for it helps me cope and I’m sure it will bring back many happy memories every time I’ll look at it.


I incorporated a photograph I took many years ago, but I blurred it a bit, for I don’t want to share anyone’s picture without their permission.

I’d like to enter this journal spread into a the following challenges:

The quote I used for my pages comes from a beautiful song called ”To each his storm’ by ‘Rome’:

If this journal spread inspires you in any way (the colours, the theme of nature/trees, your favourite song quote, the theme of commemoration/illness …) in creating your own, please feel free to  post a link to your creation in my comments, so that I can have a look!

    I like how your journal takes on the song’s form with many stories of past storms in the tress. I love how I can loose myself just by looking into your world. Very nicely put together with the beautiful music and your colours. That is love.

    What an emotive page. I love the way the tree stays connected to the ground across both pages – such a clever touch given the subject of your text. Friends like Dan will always stay with you as they live on in your mind. It sounds like you already appreciate that by bringing his thoughts and words into your life. Thank you for sharing this with us at TioT. x
