Writing in my art journal. Writing!
That is what a journal is: a daily record of news and events of a personal nature; a diary.
Not a sketchbook, not a mixed media book, an art journal.
What is my point? To tell you the truth, I'm not sure. It's something about feeling free to write personal stuff in my art journal. And that is kinda weird because I teach art journaling and so I think I should show my students my art journal.
I want to share my art journaling. And I blog it - so there is my journal out for everyone to see. My personal writing.
But hell, isn't that what an artist is? Don't we share our soul's journey and maybe say stuff that other people are scared to? Hell, I am scared to as well. I am scared to be judged.
Last week, journal girl wrote a neat post on my post about what people write in their art journals. Maybe a few more people would like to get in on the conversation?
How much should we try and control how other people see us? Can we control it? If we let others see us 'warts and all' will we suffer for it? These are the questions on my mind.
