art journalling as worship

Even as a little girl, in my earliest memories I knew there was a God and He loved me.  I kept wonderful pictures of this Almighty Being in my mind as I made mud pies in the back yard, pedalled my pushbike around the block and ate large pieces of watermelon spitting the pips off the veranda. These days I keep those pictures of God in my head as I create.  So for me often my art journalling is a spiritual experience.  As I meditate, read or listen to music for inspiration while i sit at my craft desk I can’t help but let those thoughts overflow into my paint and paper.

I don’t believe that our spiritual life was ever meant to be just intellectual, so art journalling is part of my meaningful worship.

Art journalling is two way dialogue. I don’t create thinking about whether the art is right or wrong, art journalling is all just an expression of my relationship with the Man Upstairs or a dialogue with myself.
