I am going to continue art journaling each day in 2016.
For me it is a process of allowing whatever there is in the mind to arrive on the page, visually. A lot of what I "allow" is redundant. In the past, that has stopped me from making art. Now I just keep it going, keep it flowing, whether I like the result or not.
I think it's better this way. Visually interesting things occasionally occur. See these rectangles? That is because I am going to make 6 large paintings.
