Start With A Flower

This week we start with a flower. It doesnt matter that you've never
painted one before or that you have and suck at it or just dont have time
to do a great painting. Anything worth doing is worth doing crappy because
painting sloppy flowers is fun. and more importantly it gets us out of ourselves
and away from the fear of a white page. Drawing what is in front of you
is a great way to begin a journal page even if that is not the image you
end up with. It is fallacy that great art begins and ends in one stream.
The truth is that things change. Just like a writer needs to write out through
the rusty water, visual artists need to keep their arms moving even when not inspired.
Some pages are not about great composition and perfect borders. This is not a scrapbook. This is a mixed media journal about your life. Some pages might have beautiful flowers in them, or portraits, or drawings you take a lot of time with.
But that is not the only kind of art. Free expression without concern for 'art school rules' leads to freedom. It does.

Start with a flower. See where it takes you. Perhaps it will lead you to a memory of your grandmother and will lead you to search thru photo albums for her picture. Maybe it will remind you of lemonade and summers cutting the grass, you can paint that. and maybe for you it will start and end with a flower, the flower that sits before you. This is good. This is what art journaling should be.
