For this year's journals, I decided to used my new rubber stamps to put words on each quilt. Veil of Tears is the first of the series of my husband leaving. He's been gone for a little over 2 months. I am able to postpone my crying to times when I am alone. The holidays were miserable. It was so hard to get excited about halloween, thanksgiving or christmas. This is my first self-portrait. I didn't draw it first, a first for me. The box with the tears I painted and threw salt on it while it dried. Salt for my wounds. I feel detached from my heart.
