I have another page for Art Journal Journey today. The theme is "In My Garden" hosted by Yvonne. I used a Gelli print as my background and created this bright cheery page. That's how my garden feels to me, a bright and cheery place. Right now I have yellow and white flowers blooming. Plus some pink and orange and red flowers too. :)
The quote says "Flowers refresh the spirit and lift the soul. M. Lever"
These blooms in my garden certainly are refreshing my soul.
Its been a bit dry here and surprisingly the flowers seem to be loving it. Just enough rain I guess to give them an occasional drink.
Tomorrow (Thursday), I am headed south to Boston. The hubby needs to visit his kidney specialist, and I am going along. Keep your fingers crossed his blood work comes back normal so he can move forward with his transplant this fall.
I hope I can convince him to visit the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum afterwards. I know the art won't excited him but I would think her house (which is very historical and interesting itself) might.
Gardner and her husband did extensive traveling in the late 1800's and early 1900's. During their travels they bought a lot of art, which they displayed in their Boston home. When she died, Isabella Stewart Gardner stipulated in her will that her home remain as is and become a museum.
The museum is also famous because in 1990, 13 priceless works of art were stolen. The case is still open because they have never yet been found.
I haven't been there since the 1980's, and I really want to go back.
I will have photos for you IF we make it there tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
