Turn to art whatever happens

 

Somebody made that assumption once that the process of making art should be only "relaxing”. That vision of the painter with a smile on his face when paining another bunch of flowers or sunset…Well not so much in my case...

Failing Creatively

 Failure- not so much popular subject is it? Not many posts on social media of our creative failures, attempts that do not lead anyway or turn out to be something totally different. Creative failure- does it exist? How can we redefine the failure to actually incorporate it into a creative process? First of all try to say and imagine the expression "failure" without the negative connotation. Can you? Why is our mind so resistant to understand and accept failure? Is that because failure equals rejection? Rejection of what? Self-worth, self-importance or maybe it defines us  in the way we do not like to show? Let's fail creatively!

Artist self- talk

People say that talking to yourself is a first sign of madness. How about talking to yourself about art (mad enough?) and then recording it and making a clip! Artist self-talk is the inspiration for the series "Behind the journals". So far there are 3 clips where I question self-expression, emotional release and state of mind- all having important role in a creative process. Behind the journals is more about the mind talk than picking up the brush. All because to be able to pick up a brush, open your journal and give it a start you need to talk- often talk to yourself...

Subconscious Collage for Art Journaling Episode 6 is now out. This time I am sharing my slower process and you can see the page spread built during 2 days. Some layers are taken off and incorporated into the page in a different way. Lots of combining, exploring, taking time and waiting for the creative process to flow.

Slower art journaling

Art journaling and your approach to it is like a life journey- it keeps changing, developing and growing as you do. That is the magic of this visual form of art- it is so close to human expression and need to connect with inner world that is able to take you to new places of your own personality. The process may be not straight forward, often difficult and full of disappointment, but by the end of day you get a priceless reward in a form of seeing your own ego and being able to overcome it. I am not such a master yet, far away from that but I am definitely trying to steer in that direction. Hence the reason my art journaling process is becoming slower and more complex. Here is the last week adventure...

Behind the journals- new series of clips!

Tempted for a while I finally decided to create new series of inspirational clips devoted to looking what emotions and states of mind drive the process of art journaling. Those clips are much shorted than Subconscious Collage project and are meant to play a role of "inspiration injections". I am planning also to produce those more often and build new series. Here are some questions and answers that may explain more about this idea:
