Feel the sorrow - art Journaling the sorrow away

Hello and welcome
My father died unexpectedly the night of January 17. It was a big shock and I have a very difficult time now. I thought he would live for many years yet. That we would experience several days together and that he would experience many nice moments with his grandchildren and great grandson. I was wrong.

In my greaf I find comfort in art and in my art journal. So this page is my expression of my sorrow:


Even in the darkest days there is a shade of colors.




In what way do you deal with grief? Music maybe? I think music can also be a help in grief.

The funeral will be on Thursday. Then that is the last goodbye. After that we have to try to live - laught, love, dance and sing.

Tell someone dear "I love you", today. Tomorrow it could be to late.

Thank you for visiting. Take care!

Hugs, Anita

  1. I am deeply sorry for your loss, dear Anita ♥
    Your art journal page is beautiful and it's good that you are able to create and express your sorrow through your art. I am not sure how I would deal with grief like this. Scream and cry! And I would probably need to talk about it and express my grief verbally. I don't really express my feelings when I make cards or other things, but it's good that you do if it can help you in some way.
    My heart goes out to you, dear friend.

  2. Kære Anita Jeg kondolerer med din far og kan godt forstå at du savner ham, jeg håber at din journaling kan hjælpe på noget af dit savn og sorg. Jeg mistede mine kære da jeg var teenager, og det var en hård proces. Kram, Susan

  4. My heart goes out to you & your family, Anita, at this time of grief. I've been there & nothing really helps--I still miss my dad every day & it's been 7 years. I do find comfort, though, in many happy memories & try to live as you said--tomorrow is not a given. Beautitul journaling page. Sending hugs, Greta
