Part 35:

Well, here we are!  35 days of journaling.  Feel free to expand on the exercises.  Feel free to copy and share.  Feel free to say, “Fuck you, I hate these, I’m going my own way!”  But I do encourage you to continue a daily relationship with your journal.   It is YOU.

Friendship with ones self is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.

– Eleanor Roosevelt

Today, just play.

Personally, I have processed a lot in these exercises, and have come quite a ways in addressing my fears and anxieties.  Journaling is not necessarily about solutions or cures, but it is about process and tools.  And it’s addictive.

I fall back on this journal just as some other poor devil takes to drink.

Here are some of my favorite books on journaling:

Artists’ Journals and Sketchbooks: Exploring and Creating Personal Pages by Lynne Perrella

Art Journals and Creative Healing: Restoring the Spirit Through Self-Expressionby Sharon Soneff

Creative Awakenings- envisioning the life of your dreams through art by Sheri Gaynor

 

My next series will be about ARTISTS– one artist a week for 10 weeks- and we use that artist as a starting point for personal exploration.

  1. Frida Kahlo (1907-1954)
  2. Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)
  3. Lisa Larson  (1931- )
  4. George Grosz (1893-1959)
  5.  Faith Ringgold (1930- )
  6. Jean Michel Basquiat (1960-1988)
  7. Willem de Kooning 1904-1997
  8. Otto Dix (1891-1969)
  9. Sue Coe (1951-)
  10. Lucian Freud (1922- 2011)

Love,

Katarina
