While making houses
I've learned through the keeping of a journal, how often I go back to the same themes and thoughts, over and over again. My art is the same way - each piece might take a different form but the colors are similar, the themes are definitely similar and the thoughts I have while doing them are like favorite television reruns - making me laugh, smile, ponder and sometimes frown as I repeat a theme of birds, butterflies, love, music or home. Very mundane I know - nothing very deep here, but everything my hands touch reflects a part of me as do the writings in my journals.
Are there some journals you'd just love to peek into? Do you keep a journal and what form does it take?
