Protect the soul of the universe…

each of us  in our day to day lives have the power to make a difference to help protect our fragile world even though some days it may feel very small…

Magpie's Nest Protect the soul of the universe (2)

thinking about the plight of the honeybee all around the globe inspired two more art journal pages in my gesso journal for this month’s AJJ “living beings” challenge

Magpie's Nest Protect the soul of the universe (1)

(gesso… star tissue paper… peeled map napkin… paint… computer generated words… bee and rubber stamp images)

  7. Wonderful pages and oh how true that the bees are so vital to our existence here on earth. Without them, our food sources would be seriously depleted, if not gone altogether.

    I like the contrast of the blue and gold tones against that wonderful Gesso background. Do I spy some of the same floral napkin (?) as used on the post I just commented on?
