Rediscovery

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 22, 2015, 2:51 AM


I know, I'm not exactly a prolific journal writer, this is probably due to the chaotic nature of the way I work. Sometimes I go months when I think I'm unable to create anything, but when I look back I find a whole range of sketches and little art pieces that almost made themselves. 
I don't know how the rest of you work, but a lot of my art is instinctive and happens out of a need to portray an idea or an emotion, the feelings need to solidify on paper or in clay. This is a need rather than a desire. 

The other side of my work is responding to outside stimuli, and the enjoyment of following a theme set by others to create something new, so my current work with Wyldwood Radio and the Wyldwood Grove is very motivating. The deep and the old and the mysterious that make up the myths legends and magic that surrounds us all are a joy in themselves just as the delights of a good book take you on an emotional journey, the pagan themes and ideas are very close to my heart and the images are incredibly clear much of the time so the magic is there and they sort of create themselves. I hear a lot about creative process and I totally agree with the idea, although for me, its more about the fun and enjoyment of the creation process and the shear delight of a muse that takes over and causes things to appear under my hands.

I put a fair amount of my work on dA, not just the polished and finished stuff but the odd, the experimental, and the bits that don't quite work for me because the enjoyment is in the making and the discovery and rediscovery of techniques and effects, the little triumphs and moments of intensity. For me that is the process and the truth of my artwork, the time spent with my muse that is part and at the same time separate from the person I think I am.


  We are all learning and evolving and the mistakes and craziness are a part of that.
