Good morning!

For me, a 'good morning' means that the first thing I see is:

  • white and bright room,
  • colors,
  • a journal, waiting for me,
  • and the excitement I feel, knowing I will have time for creating.
'Good morning' is a first theme in a year's 2012 (#1/12) PHOTOproject by Luzia Pimpinella, in which I'm going to participate. I love the motto of the project: Beauty is where you find it. I couldn't agree more.

Luzia Pimpinella is one of my favorite blogs, full of beautiful pictures, thoughts and unique views. Come and check it out, plus look at the other works of people participating. It is interesting and fun! 

I'm also participating in another photo-challange this year. You will find Project P52 2012 on Google Plus. Every week we have a new theme to photograph. Then we put our images on our G+ site. You can find my images when clicking on the picture below:

Photography means a lot to me, so it's about time to spend some time with it :). Get ready for more!

  • Because I like to visualize my thoughts.
  • Because I'm not good with words.
  • Because I like to experiment and play.
  • Because I like the feeling of paint on my hands.
  • Etc.

It's not important how the finished page looks like. I don't say it's really mine as many times I use images from magazines, books, pieces of work from other artists... But many times, a new idea emerges from these creative flows, a fresh idea for a new, 'my-only' art work.

You should try it too. You don't have to be an artist, a master of words, and you don't have to buy new art materials to do it. Take what you have and express what you want... It's that simple, that easy! 

Soon you will notice that journaling calms you down, makes you happy and satisfied, it connects you with your inner self, clears your thoughts, it makes you active, it connects both sides of your brain and...
