learning to see with our eyes, as an artist sees, and not with the brain...daily sketching - a must add to my routine. excellent post, as always, barbara!

did you know? the brain makes no distinction between reality and imagination? if you can think it, the brain behaves as if it is real...

love the journal page. rich with symbols that resonate in my brain.


Barbara, what a brilliant post. Firstly I am deeply envious that you have time to go deeply into your journals - but I don't say that to be mean, I just flit about too much and squander the time I do have!!
There are such gorgeous colours in that spread, which the foxgloves attempt to dominate... and I have said before (to Hermine, I think), that you are an advocate for practising drawing every day. I really should get round to doing that - I can make time for that wherever I am!!
I love your bold colours and it is my dearest wish that we shall meet, sooner rather than later!
Take care,
xoxoxo Rosie

This is beautifully said and illustrated. What a great lesson in life and in art. I plan on getting back to my sketch book. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration.


I love Julianna Coles workshops. I did two last summer, and I still use her techniques in my mixed media paintings. Your journal spread is a stunner.


Hi Barbara,

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

Your post is so thoughtful -- and so true! :)

Greetings from Munich,


I'm again totally excited about your fantastic art work. You are so multi-talented, thank you for sharing your talent, I enjoy most visiting your blog.
Have a nice week,
Hugs from Nuremberg in germany,


Your journals are wonderful and your words are filled with wisdom. We do not find meaning in life, we make meaning in life. And you are truly making meaning. Thanks for sharing so much of yourself with us.


Love that idea of drawing everything in site, need to practice that more often...Thanks for the great blog.
