Some people, who will remain namless, have said that they like my art journal pages better than my paintings done on canvas or board. Humf! I think what they are seeing is the looseness and freedom that comes from not having any worries about what you are putting down. My journal pages are also done over a longer period of time. I'll scrape on a coat of paint one day, use up some printers ink with a linocut another day and then doodle with pens a month later. SOME people suggested that I cut up my journals and sell the pages. Insert horrified look here. I have come up with the perfect solution. I've found that they now sell some very wonderful 100% cotton rag, acid free heavy weight paper for inkjet printers. So, together with my very expensive Vivera Ink which is supposed to last without fading for eons, I can make my very own prints of my journal pages. Yeah!
Check them out in my shop!
