Journal Page Self Doubt

First, there was a pencil sketch,
then came the inking......
I could not begin to use color till
I figured out just exactly what was
this page about---what was behind
those eye close-ups of yours truly.
Knowing me, pretty well.......
I wrote phrase after phrase and
then turned the paper over to write
more. When I wrote what I used, I
knew instantly, that THAT was
the reason for this spread....
a reminder to stay out
of that trap of the past. I
also bothered to make 4 different quick
small color selection trials--which
I thought at the time, was adding too
much "thought" into a simple
spread...this might kill my enthusiasm......
and nothing looked good to me
until the thought of using very soft
colors crystallized and that was right...for me.

Looks like very complicated work just getting your thoughts on paper. Good job!!!

The eyes are the window to the soul. Hats off to the artist who drew them!

I'm in a love/hate relationship with digital memory because of the way prices are always,and I mean always falling. I hate buying SD Cards for my R4 / R4i at (seemingly) a crazy bargain price only to see it become a whole lot more cheaper a few months later.
