What will our children do in the morning if they do not see us fly? - Rumi

These are some pages from one of my art journals.  This is a new approach for me inspired by  
 Matisse who described his paper cut out process as "drawing with scissors" explaining: "Paper cutouts allow me to draw in color, I see it as a simplification. Instead of drawing the contour and putting color into it--one modifying the other--I draw directly in color." 
 I used loose watercolors in the background and then cut out past drawings and glued them on.  This was wonderfully fun! 

"Creativity takes Courage"  H. Matisse
