Monday's Are a Good Thing....

Monday's are good to get me back on track. I had a couple of days over the weekend of just being lazy and playing in the studio. I didn't post anything then....sorry. I did keep up with my journal pages and even managed to do some other art....well, I started some other art. It isn't finished yet.

I've decided to work through The Artist's Way again. I read this book the first time back in the 90's and it helped me a lot. For a long time I did morning pages almost religiously and I found that my mind was much clearer during that time. But then something happened to throw me off-course and I quit doing them.

Robyn is hosting a workshop using The Artist's Way. If you're interested she has a link on her blog where you can sign up and follow along. I don't have a very good track record when it comes to online book workshops. I usually think they look interesting, sign up, buy the book (and read it) but never follow through with any of the discussions. I don't know why but I have a difficult time discussing what I've read! It may go back to my school years when I would actually be physically sick when I had to give a book report.

Anyway, I signed up and told Robyn that I might not be a good participant but that I will cheer her on and also let everyone know about her workshop. So if you're interested please join in.

Now here are my latest journal pages....

I was trying to think of one word to describe myself and HB came up with "seeker" fit perfectly! I am a seeker. I wish I could know everything there is to know about everything! I don't mean I want to be a know-it-all! I just want to have the knowledge and wisdom from everything there is. I think that's why I'm so in love with online art classes. I'm seeking that little tidbit of information that will change how I do art.

You will have to wait until tomorrow for today's page. I haven't done it yet! I usually get up early and head to the studio to work on it but now that I'm starting morning pages again I'm doing them first thing. We'll see how long that lasts! But even if I dump just a small portion of the garbage that has accumulated in my brain it will be a good thing.

Go out there and have a fantastic Monday....
