I have long thought about starting my own art journal, but then, I realized two things. First, and foremost, I haven't a clue what I'm doing. I've studied art basically on my own since 2006, using various texts... Second, I think this blog is (or could be) an art journal of sorts, although it's sometimes altogether too public for my comfort, whereas, in book form any art journal I work on would be much more private.
True, I haven't posted much lately, or done much with my art either. That's my sole resolution for 2015 - to work on my art more, and perhaps start that private art journal - in a real sketchbook. The only thing I really lack is the motivation to do something out of my comfort zone. The Artist's Community Project on The Artist's Network might just be that motivation. Comments anyone?
This blog is here, so I may as well use it to display the art pieces I create. More than four years after I started, my main medium is still graphite and colored pencil, but I am also now experimenting with watercolor paints. Such pieces as I deem worthy will be displayed here, however, after posting the few back-dated pieces, my postings may not be too regular. I've been known to destroy unfinished pieces I do not like or to just not finish those pieces and move on to something else.
