The art journals
I don't claim at all, ever to be an artist. But I do like to draw and create and I like other people to draw and create and dance because that is our birthright, really.
Right now I am doing a series of exercises from a book called "Creative Journaling" that help with tuning into one's feelings, identifying the root problems, expressing what is blocked and so on. This picture was a self-portrait sort of deal. A lot of what I'd drawn thus far was random imagery and somewhere in me I was expecting a black blob to show up in the page. But I made this feral woman with a necklace of bugs and snakes and fangs and a smile. And I liked it.
