This was created in Laure Ferlita’s online Earth Day Heart ZOOM class which I took last week. Laure kindly provided us with the design and lettering along with detailed instructions so we could all be prepared to just jump in and paint along with her during our hour long class.
Although this class is no longer available, Laure has other
upcoming ZOOM classes which might entice you. She also has many tempting on-demand courses ranging from the short project driven class to multi-week deeper dives.

and that means it’s Fake Journal time again!
Want to see what I’m doing this year? I’m posting on
Skylark Karma, my dedicated fake journal blog containing all my fake journals from 2012 to the present.
This year my character’s using ink and watercolor in an A4 sketchbook not meant for wet media. Does she care? Not a bit. Join me as we see what piques her interest this month.
Here’s more information on what she’s going to use.
It’s going to be a great month!

Sometimes current events and the emotions evoked are best described with an image.
Beauty is whatever gives joy.

Looking pensive in this self-portrait done a few days before Congress’ vote to accept the Electoral College count on January 6, 2021. Yes, I was concerned there might be protests turning violent but the level of insurrection from the riotous mob shocked me.
I look at this now and see only sorrow.
