drawing on old book pages

There's something about drawing on an old book page . The paper feels good . It takes pen and ink well .
and then there is the magic of the words ...

This is written at the top of page 322 :

"...completely to touch her at all . In the end nothing properly matched , except a certain sense of aloneness , which was only an ironic consequence .
She was left as she had been left then , without Phillip or the queenly Astrid of the Belgians either ,

occupying her own circle of space , in a reverberating echo pool of silence . "

It doesn't seem to matter much that I don't know the whole story of this book .... I just love certain phrases .

anyway > A print of this is in my Etsy shop

Oh and P.S. ..... yes I used Derwent Inktense pencil ...... the color is called ..... ' willow ' Oh I love that Inktense

bunny cloud painting...sold

I had one of those weekends >
Saturday I was so depressed and confused , lonely too.
Sunday . nice things happened and I felt very grateful .

When the Lord answers your prayer ....
It is so deeply personal and specific to your need that it can't ,...... could never be explained away as 'coincidence'.

another lesson in HIS faithfulness and kindness towards us .
