    Something Old, Something New

    "An older author is constantly
    rediscovering himself
    in the more or less fossilized
    productions of his earlier years."
    ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

    art journal page + photograph = rainbow grunge

    A few months ago, I took some time to page through my accumulated art journals, sketch books, altered books, moleskines, written notes, even photographs, as described in A Path Through Art. I wanted to see what had changed, how things had evolved, to remind myself of things that I'd tried and wanted to explore further.

    I love to page through my art journals and moleskines in search of patterns I've used in the past. Reinventing or altering them for a new creation is a challenge I adore.

    "So much time, so little to do.
    Strike that, reverse it."
    ~ Gene Wilder, Willy Wonka

    Eden developed a creative + colorful Doodle Directory to track the myriad of patterns used in her artwork.

    Tammy: I am not sure I know how you find time to sleep. You are one amazing, multitasking, creative woman. I love reading about all you do. Thank you for the info when I first started my blog. It is slowly coming along, but,has a long way to go. Again. Thank you for sharing so much with all of us.

    I'm like you that I like to see what I've done in the past! With our digital media it's so easy to take stock of what we've created and file it away for future reference. I have not so much recycled my work though, but I would
    definitely go there if I found a new use for something! And I've been known to get on a roll with something and do it to exhaustion!! LOL!

    *Martha, I assure you, I do sleep. Sometimes too much! If you saw the state of my housekeeping it all might make more sense, but really I appreciate your kind words and I am happy that your blog is blossoming.

    * Eden, I enjoy seeing all of the variations you develop from a core idea. Sometimes I switch to something new too quickly and I like the idea of going back and exploring. There is not enough time in the day. Even if I don't iron.
