The Happiness Project 2014

I’ve been struggling with this image for a year or so, I think because I have never drawn a face as beautiful as this under the guidance of an american artist, Suzi Blu. It was the first thing I did in a new journal, so it was a shame that I felt I couldn’t continue to use the rest of the journal, until I had finished this one! Anxiety had built up about it but recently I’ve had a small operation which has made me have to slow down and rest for a few weeks. I’ve been able to think about it and decided to complete it as an autumn picture, especially when I found the beautiful quote by the British poet John Donne. It has made me feel happy, so I feel I’ve given myself the permission to carry on my journal with the Happiness project and other journalling too!
