some fantastic artwork

First two weeks of Fun A Day

This month has been pretty hard with my Grammy deciding to stop eating, then dying, so this has been highlighted in my Fun A Day project. It kind of feels ironic to even call it fun but it has been a nice outlet for my sorrow. The funeral was yesterday and I didn’t manage to work on my book but I’ll make it up today.

I have been doing the visual diary and self-portrait on the front and a collage on the back.

I used to do this kind of thing when I was a teenager in a ruled diary.

Everyone in the family got sick besides me, which was also very un-fun.

Milo learned to draw faces, which is very exciting. These photos sure are blurry.

Death is hard, it brings a lot of tears.

Tissue paper is a great collage medium.

Wine was a nice gift.

Photos of my dad made me smile.

Another round of illness in the house, that I was lucky to avoid but privileged to clean. A trip to the steam room was needed.

  1. Very lovely work, Amy. Sorry to hear about your Grammy… 😦 I love the combination of collage and drawing. I also think I’d love to see some more drawing on top of the collages.

    • Thanks, it was a hard loss. I like that idea of drawing more onto the collages. I may go back into some of them.
