Here are a couple of pages from my art journal that I have been filling at a frantic rate. It is a dual exploration of different techniques and subjects coupled with me trying to free up my creativity. My work is usually rather 'straight', but inside there is definitely a mad artists trying to escape. I have given myself permission to do anything in my journal - even if at times it is rather juvenile, or like an angst ridden adolescent's diary. I am aiming to indulge myself, but I keep feeling I must justify myself - it is strange how difficult it is to let go and not worry about critisism. Now I can get back to selecting photographs for my assignment before the glue and paint beckon.
