Triumphs and Defeats journal page

Another art journal page. I meant to have this ready for the Fall, Fearless, and Fly challenge but wasn't feeling well and didn't have the energy or desire to get it done on time. I am posting it anyway because it is a page and I did paint, and I also worked on it a lot. It doesn't make sense to me yet but I had this I went with it.
The quote is this:
"Not in the clamour of the crowded street,
not in the shouts and the plaudits of the throng,
but in ourselves, are Triumph and Defeat."

The color theme is obvious: black and white. It was really different to work with just these colors but I love how it turned out.
To tell the truth I don't know what I would have colored this if I could have used any color!

Close ups of the two halves.

I'm also sharing this page with others on the following blogs:
Art Journal Everyday -this is a group, you might have to join to view the artwork.
Creative Everyday-Art Every Day Month (Nov) #46
and Mandarin Orange Monday -#42 (for my "orange" version of this page below)
I just love photoshop! All I did was adjust the hue, saturation, and lightness of my page and this is what I got. Love it!

This is very well done, I hope you are feeling better. I love to art journal but I do not get to it as often as I like because of my FM and Arthritus, but I do some form of art every week because God has given me such a passion for it.
I really like this challenge and like the vision you have shared. Hugs and blessings

Interesting pattern...Op Art! You transformed it into orange beautifully. Photoshop does magic...but you make it do it:)
Thank you for being part of Mandarin Orange Monday:)
