The secret ingredient is resentment, those are the words to illustrate this week. Annabel, sitting on her house shaped stool is telling her friend Jenny all about her boyfriend. Jenny had heard most of it before but stood quietly listening to the latest moan. 'Would you believe it" she said, "he didn't even get me a bunch of red roses this year for Valentines Day, all I received was this single rose, and even that is pink not red. I didn't get chocolates, or a night out , but did get a cheap card with sloppy sentiments in it. He'll have to go, he obviously thinks chocolates will make me fat and a meal out would be a bit expensive when he can cadge a meal with me in my flat. As far as I am concerned at the moment the secret ingredient is resentment. I'm going to put an advert in the local singles column, there is bound to be someone better than him. What do you think Jenny?" Jenny didn't know what to say, so didn't say anything at all.
On Art Journal Journey this month, Sheila has chosen A single flower for her theme. so this fits in with that.
