I love keeping a journal. I have quite a few journals that I've kept over the years. I was looking through my art journals today. There are very few pages that I want to publish on this blog. Most of my pages aren't really good enough to publish. That's okay, I still like them, they are for me and no one else. I was thinking that I have to do a lot of art before I get to the good stuff. Photographers know that they have to take hundreds of photographs to get one really good shot. As an artist I am learning to accept this fact. I think that keeping an art journal helps me get it all out of me - the good and the bad. Some pages are so bad I just cut them out of the journal. I won't torture you with the not so great pages, just the good ones!
