It's time for CHANGE !!!



I feel a wonderful change in the air! I woke up so happy after election day. Yes I voted! This larger collage of mine (hanging in my living room) is called "Odds and Ends",since it was made from scraps of painted and printmaking pieces I had left over. I just love the richness of printmaking inks. Although the rich browns aren't showing as well in this. It makes me think about how long will it take for Obama to clean up all the odds and ends left over from the last 8 years. Boy does he have a challange ahead of him. But with his charisma and willingness I think good things are coming our way.

I'm sure it won't happen overnight but thank goodness it will happen. I'm breathing a sigh of relief that Obama will be in charge very soon and those dark days will be behind us all.

Great piece, here, Joy! And; I agree, with you, 100% It's a time for change and I think Obama can get us in a positive direction!

I was talking about this same topic again last night, as I am sure I will do so repeatedly in the coming years. Just by showing up, Obama has a huge impact. Even if his hands are tied by the enormous mess the bratty little Republicans are leaving him right now, he will inspire healing and change in each person who can hear him speak. Change will happen, with or without centuries of debt to clear up!

Joy, thanks for visiting my site. I love your journal page with the wise words of how to treat others. How funny and true! I like the scraps, bits and pieces of printing. I wish I could see it more closely, but thanks for sharing. - jeanne

I love this piece. It looks so "tied together"
I'm so happy about Obama. Happy days are here, again. I know it will take awhile, but I'm willing to sacrifice in the meantime. I guess I'll be sacrificing whether I'm willing or not, tho, Thanks to the last administration. On to the future!!!

P.s. Thanks for visiting and commenting. I've got to remember to take the time myself. It really helps to know that someone is actually reading what you write and looking at your art,etc.
