Sometimes we question who we are as ARTISTS. Sometimes we are unsure we deserve to call ourselves ARTISTS. But, in reality we are all artists. Whether we create with paint and collage, or find the best way to run an office, or teach a child, or play a rift on the guitar.
I awoke on Saturday questioning if I was an artist. I didn't feel creative on this day. I wanted to SHUTDOWN...but then....I got out my Visual Journal and I played. That was the key. I was having FUN. I was expressing myself. It was then that my spirit began to lift..and it was then that I was able to call myself an ARTIST once again.
Another page from my junk mail journal. The word SHUTDOWN, the words LIFT YOUR SPIRIT, and the image of the window with the ocean view are all from junk mail I found in my mailbox this past week. Art is all around us. No excuses. Go. Make. Art.
