the art of your life

today is my salute to art journals. there is something so moving about seeing artists' words along with their art; it reminds me that there is a person with thoughts and emotions and unique life experiences behind their work. when i look at a journal page, i feel like i'm getting a clandestine peek into a corner of an artist's life, and that one little piece always makes me want to know more: why did they write what they did? what were they feeling? what happened that day? what prompted them to start writing and drawing and painting at that very moment?
