Another day and another entry into the inspirational watercolour journal. I started the journaling as I had hoped it would inspire and energize me across the rest of my everyday life as well as other art, literary and musical pursuits. Well, I believe it has and I have thrown caution to the wind, and a few household chores along with it, and acted as if it is impossible to fail. I have also noticed others around me who behave in the same manner. Family, friends, fellow bloggers and even people I do not know. A great example was a very young man I saw when I was out and about today. This young man had embraced his discomfort with boys clothes and everything that is boyish and dawned the clothing and mannerisms of a girl. He was hanging out with two other boys and three other girls. His friends, boys and girls alike, accepted him with abandon. A huge credit to this boy and his friends! He and they created an environment in which he acted as if it was impossible to fail ( I thought!). I only wish I could be as brave on a daily basis.
The work today includes the daily journal page close up without the full-page. In a fit of overzealous art making I started on tomorrow’s without realizing I hadn’t taken the full-page photo. You also get a little preview of tomorrow!!
In atonement for my “happy accident” (thanks to Jean Rooney, Visual Artist for this little quote), I’m adding a few sketch book marker pieces I began yesterday. My inspiration for those is a friend I miss dearly who lives far, too far away. We have a Saturday morning routine of e-mailing eachother and after I read her message I really wished I could have been there. These colours made me feel much closer to her. Enjoy, act, view and keep making art.
