I did scan in some of the newer works yesterday. I try and scan them in as I make them and go through them but I did get behind. Yesterday I scanned in over 20 new pieces.
I am still quite enamored with the idea of creating ghost prints over ghost prints. It is an interesting process and one which I seem to have more control over than the non-ghost prints. At least in placement etc.
I am still enjoying the process.
I have been trying to create a journal as well. I was having some trouble with the whole idea of writing down my thoughts. It seems I am always worried about someone reading them and so I always censor myself or tear out the pages that really have meaning. I have to get past that somehow in order to succeed at journal writing.
I decided to take an online class from Julianna Coles. Her work is extraordinary. I appreciate the way her journals are not all pretty pictures. You can feel her emotional state jumping off the pages of her journals. Very raw. She calls her work "Extreme Journaling". If you visit her site you will see why.
Well, maybe I will get something done in my studio today. Enjoy the weekend.
