To honor my grandfather, I wanted to dedicate a journal to him as well as to those who have lost someone who they cherished dearly.
My grandfather was an incredible man. He fought in the war but was always cheerful. He buried first his child (my mother) and then his wife before him. He was incredibly strong and he shaped how I believe a true gentleman should be. His passing was peaceful, but it doesn't stop me wishing that he was still here. There's still so much more that I could learn from him. If only I could have seen him one last time.
This journal will be filled with peaceful art themed around the colour white. White is not only a peaceful and pure colour, but it can also symbolize loneliness and loss.
I have picked thematic art from different medias. There are some to calm us, some that remind me of grandfather, and some that simply deserve more recognition.
We are blessed with those we have in our lives. Cherish them always.
