.02

Img015 Back in the summer I started another visual journal.  I don't keep them with any regularity, but this one has been the most fun so far after deciding to abandon doing this for any specific purpose.  Images that inspire, doodles, experiments, colour play, just whatever, goes into it.  Of course I guess if I have to reference something thiImg013s would make it difficult to find. Ahhhh, but come what may...I'll just roll right along.



My drawImg016ing skills are close to non-existent but it is one of those things I keep promising myself to take more seriously...I have all these things I want to learn about...wines, coffees, photography, etc.  My wish lists are endless.  How about yours?   Img019

  1. The textiles with "legs" in the second photo are really intriguing. i keep journals that are chronological rather than thematic. it is a pain to find stuff, but I manage, and it's a process that works for me. Oddly, you were in one of my dreams last night. You received something and there was much rejoicing on your blog. I don't remember what it was, other than it was something we knew you were anticipating, but it wasn't your camera. Go figure.

  2. I can almost hear a poem in your doodle of the faces among the leaves.

  3. Karoda Darling!!
    Like yours, my wish list is endless! I want to play with fiber for the next 1,000 years, and maybe then I'll be satisfied.
    I love your upper right leaf person...that's me all right!!
    I have stopped journaling, but I think/hope 2008 will be a new journaling year for me.

  5. Visual journals are such a treat! Thanks for sharing a few pages with us. I love the leaf women and agree with Nellie, about almost hearing a poem in your doodling.
    My wish list for concrete things is mostly fiber and book related, and I'd never have enough time to use/read them all. I have another endless wish list about travel and abstract wishes.

  6. I want to study meteorology, get a reliable small car and a tiny boler trailer and slowly travel stopping to paint everytime I see something extraordinary, play in an orchestra, document (with paint and canvas) a pine forest under beetle attack, learn html, learn to speak another language(s), try my hand at pottery, learn to carve in wood, take up curling, make wine using the fruit from our orchard, start an alternative business council here, attend more concerts, make another altered book, create a whole exhibit of altered books, climb Sleeping Beauty Mountain (know a sherpa who would like to carry me?), build a cabin on Haida Gwaii, bring a huge unstallation art idea I have into existence, live to be 120 and still independent and still learning..... take more naps, quit my job, make a living painting, play - a lot.

  7. I've always struggled with visual journals...I guess I figure by the time I go to all that trouble I'd rather just get out cloth and "do it"...do you find it useful and actually use the ideas?
