My Online Art Journal

I am purple. I am many shades. Violet, lavender, periwinkle, amethyst, lilac, blue-violet. I am purple, variations, nuances, complexities. Red-violet, ultraviolet, purple-black, Crown chakra, blueberries. Ephemeral, dark, adaptation. I am all these things and more. I am purple.

I've been journaling off and on for my whole life. My first diaries were made from cutting that old striped green and white computer paper into blocks and stapleing them together. I wrote about my sister, the kids at school, my parents. During high school English class, it was a class assignment to journal for 10 min at the beginning of each class. I poured out all my teenage angst onto those pages. My first love, betrayed friendships, etc. Then during college, I did the Artist's Way as an independant study. As part of that book, you must write morning pages - three of them- every morning. I filled journal upon journal with insights, turmoil, experimentation, quotes, poetry, observations, stories, dreams. . .

Now I want to start a different kind of journal. A visual journal. To have an outlet for my overflowing creativity. So this is my online art journal.
