this post about self promotion as an artist yesterday and it REALLY hit home for me. Did any of you see it yet? I found the message really powerful, and realized that the pressure to keep promoting my art was taking more time and space in my life than actually creating it (which is what I really love). So this morning I waded my way through my art room (which is currently a storage space for all my bins from the last art show), pulled out my paints, oil pastels, and alcohol inks, and started playing. The theme ended up being about my official arrival at 37 weeks pregnant today, giving me about 3 more weeks to wait until this lovely little boy arrives. Here's a quick tummy shot. Yes, I am wearing a zebra print tank and PJ pants with a sport bra. I am down to only 2 pairs of pants that fit and maybe 4 shirts, and sport bras are all I can stand to wear underneath right now, so fashion is not exactly a top priority.
Any of you tried this medium before for journaling? I'd love to hear about what you liked, disliked about it. What worked well and see any pics if you got them. In fact, I am currently looking for anyone who wants to do a guest post about art journaling, (share some of your pages and tell the stories about their content or how you created them). Just send me an email and we'll chat! firstname.lastname@example.org Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
