Inspiration

How many of you like Picasso?

“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.”
~Pablo Picasso

Over the past two weeks I have been working on journals and altered books, along with taking a class about maps and the art of maps. I found this quote very fitting. I like the imagery of painting as a form of diary.

Really any medium is a diary, very personable, yet calling others to partake. I feel only the artist truly understands the layers because the art created is a “diary.” We choose the work we want to share and we hope to inspire others. The sharing and inspiration are what I find beautiful about art. There are so many avenues for expression and there are no fixed “rights or wrongs.”

How do you express yourself? Do you have a favorite medium that is your diary?
