Day 57: Old Friends

"Friendship Tree"  Art journal, collage of acrylic on paper

My friend Susan, whom I have known all my life, has a birthday coming up next week, so I thought maybe I should make her a card. I dug out my box of card-making supplies, and in it I found several cards that I made years ago, using thick, multi-coloured swirls of acrylic paint. 

I didn't like them, so I put them in the garbage. But then I thought, "Old dogs! New tricks!" I retrieved the cards, cut them up, and made this collage.

It's not a card, but it's a pretty good metaphor for a lifelong friendship.
