Long time no see, so I hope you are keeping well and happy.
There has been a lot going on in my life over the past year that has distracted me from my art practice. Close members of my family have been poorly and needed more of my attention and although I am fit and healthy there has been a lot of stress and my art has been well and truly neglected.
One thing I have realised in the past is that the more I practice art the easier it becomes and when I take breaks it gets harder and harder to get back in to flow. But I have also realised that practising art is good for my mental well-being so in an attempt to restart my creativity I decided to continue in my big (12″ x 16″) Landscapes Journal by just making marks. It all got a bit chaotic and I can’t say I am really pleased with this spread but it’s a start, right?
There is nothing left of the original images on the page, but they informed the end result:
So there we have it the finished spread is a visual depiction of how disorganised and jumbled my life gets at times. Still right now things are not too bad and I am enjoying having a breather and the ability to spend a little time on myself.
Take good care of yourselves and I’ll see you again sometime.
Big love AJ xxx
