MY DAY ARTED | FEBRUARY 2018

Back in 2016 I started a daily art diary. I called it my daily moleskine (because I was using a moleskine diary - original) and I loved it. It helped me daily document, deal with emotions and keep up an active art process. I repeated the same exercise for 2017, except for the last 2x months. In October, I came back from an amazing trip to Japan, completely and utterly obsessed with making abstract mixed media art. This obsession was all consuming and I literally had no desire or inclination to work in my daily art journal.

Flash forward to February 2018 and I felt grounded and settled in my art. Happily making abstract mixed media pieces that I adored and pushed me. I had found a balance with this new style and my old creative habits. 

Around the beginning of last month I started to feel a real need for my daily art practice again. I saw that Sarah Rondon had this beautiful journal from Kikki K and immediately knew I needed it.


  

So, back to the old format but with a new name. Last year when a few of my art friends joined the daily art movement, we gave it a hashtag for Instagram - #mydayarted (Thanks Vanessa for the title!) so that will be it's new name here on my blog too.
