Journal?

Standard

Hello people.  Working for a living can sometimes sap your energy for doing anything creative.  By the time I get home, maybe walk the dog, make dinner, regroup with the hubby, etc., the light has gone and so has my mojo.  Weekends have been a time of catching up and maybe getting a chance to paint.  I have a painting on the go that I am hoping to finish this weekend.  In order to help me paint more this winter, I have ordered a craft light with a daylight bulb as my eyesight is really terrible when the light is dim.  So I shall endeavor to paint something every evening.

I have quite a few journals that I have started but have not quite filled up.  I am not really a journal person but I am trying to be one.  I have never been one for doodling.  I am beginning to think I am only good at copying things, and not at creating.  I do think some people are naturally creative and great at making stuff up.  I don’t know if you can learn that.  I bought some flowers recently and decided to draw and paint them in my journal.

This isn’t 100% accurate as I left some leaves out.  The rose was done in pencil and watercolor.  Same for the Iris bud below.

I’m not crazy about the paper.  It is 90lb and quite absorbent.  It is probably better for pencils.  I will take this journal to work and take my water color pencils and see what happens.   Til next time.
