I want too....

I want to make messy, messy art in my art journal. I want to forget about getting it right for awhile, and just create. I need to loosen up, relax. Sometimes I am such a damn perfectionist that it turns into a struggle, a battle between me and the art. When I get like this, I can do good art but it's work..I have to try to hard..I don't like that. I just want the easy flow right now..I want the inner critic to just SHUT THE HELL UP!! I want my art to be fun, NOT work!! Soooo thats what I am going to do. Instead of sitting here fretting that I 'should' be working on my petite doll, or I 'should' be working on my oracle card, or my traveling journals..NO! To hell with it all right now. I am going to go and play in my art journal..Because THAT is what I truly WANT to do right now. What I need to do right now..So I am saying to hell with the nagging voice that insists I need to work on this or that instead. I am going to go get myself a nice tall glass of iced tea, put on some favorite music, and play, play, play hookie...HA! And no one can stop me!!! HAHAHAHAHA.
