I have a friend who literally lives with his art. Honestly, until I visited his amazing home for the first time, I hadn't even thought about how important that could be. His walls are filled with his paintings which rotate as purchases are made or as his mood changes. His walls are painted bright colours so that he can switch his pieces around to see how colour makes a difference to them. I love visiting and I've thought a great deal about this whole idea of "living with one's art". I remember when my Friend visited and he asked where my art was....um, living with others around the world. Why didn't I have even one piece to show him? I've decided this year to begin to make art just for me. Okay, I don't yet have a piece of mine on a wall in my home but I have dug out journals that were never finished and I'm working on them. I've also launched full force into art journaling and this has given me another opportunity to create just for myself. I think it's somehow about having the confidence to say to a visitor "and this is one of mine". I'm working towards this day. These are a couple of journal pages that I created today.....just for me!
