It is the role of the artist to see.
and to feel.
I think this is the whole key to journaling for me, I see and I make images about what I see, and I write about how I feel about it.
The nice part is that then, I seem to go inward to the inner place that feels connected to all life, the universal part.
I think that is why art speaks to us so strongly, and is the voice of all life.
and speaking of all life, I am off to play with the puppy before heading out for the day.
He is one bundle of cuteness - journal pages to come as soon as I can get him to hold still for the camera!

and these pages were all about texture -- an old door in the trash by the studio, old papers and some squiggly lines. . . . I find collaging these kinds of old things so beautiful and reassuring. . . . not even sure why.

  1. great write up..very thought provoking..though i am not so intelligent to understand the illustration though i fully agree that one has to feel and see from his or her inner eyes to illustrate something.
