I made myself an art journal the other day and am excited to be creative again...
Inside cover and first page... what are you waiting for refers to me getting my butt in gear and remembering I was once artistic...

Thank you... its new to me to try non realism in painting.  I always did realistic landscapes.  I've drawn characters but never did this style of mixed media art.  I like it so far too.

Great work on the beginning of your journal. Mine stopped suddenly after a few weeks as I didn't feel comfortable with it afterward. Just seeing yours might make me "move my butt"!
