I keep a daily journal. This year I started drawing in it too.
Yesterday, I created a bird that I really didn’t like very well. I was thinking that maybe I shouldn’t post it because I didn’t think it was very good. The ugly inner critic was working over time. So I decided to draw my inner critic in my journal:
It made me laugh!
I realized that when I create art every day, I’m not going to like everything I make and that is OK. I still want to share it with you on my blog. As an artist, I believe that it is the process of creating – every day – good or bad – in my journal or on paper that I learn to become the artist I want to be.
So here is my bird:
The bird was a Gelli-print. I glued it to the glass and then painted around it with acrylic paints. I drew the clouds into the wet paint with the end of a paint brush. I then framed it. I hope to add beads to the frame some day.
