Topic #40--"Heart" Entry

From Amanda!:

With my love of anatomical drawings I couldn't miss the chance to join in this weeks Artwords challenge - Heart.

I made this book page some weeks ago, the first for a book with the working title "Preserve". The concept is an exploration of how we try to hold onto life, which is actually a slippery process, changing constantly and passing us by.
We live in our memories and struggle to extend our youth but change keeps happening in spite of our efforts.
If we could only accept this and live in the moment, things would be so much easier.
The paper is Rives BFK, hand-embossed for depth with a Sheer Heaven transfer, wax and oil paint.
