Hello Everyone. Here we are with a brand new week and here we are back to cold and a bit of fog thrown in. It is sometimes sunnier when it gets cold so I am hopeful. Thank you for calling in today.
We are still working through the list of animals at Every Inchie Monday and this week the animal is Dog
He looks a bit sad poor thing
At Art Journal Journey the challenge for January is chosen and hosted by Erika. The theme is Every Journal Page tells a story.
I dug out a page I painted in 1990 just before we got married
This is a story that has never been told so I thought I would tell it to you now. When I first met Vic he was shy and cautious-just the opposite to me I guess. He decided to be less cautious and signed up for a climbing expedition on Skye. It was full of people like him who needed a confidence boost. They did amazing things and one of the challenges was to climb the Inaccessible Pinnacle or In Pin as it is better know. I was amazed when I saw the photographs and thought it would be great to get an artist to paint him climbing up the In Pin with him at the top in his wedding clothes wiser and stronger and pulling the 'other Vic' upwards. One artist agreed to do it then backed out at the almost the last minute so I painted it myself and Vic was so thrilled when I gave it to him on our wedding day in beautiful Jamaica. I had forgotten about it until it turned up in our wedding album recently. All our other photographs are now on disks and it was lovely to see real photographs again.
Have a great day
Love Chrissie xx
