CHRONICLES OF EVERYDAY -2019 JOURNAL
"It was while writing a Diary that I discovered how to capture the living moments." -Anais Nin.
Of all the artwork I do, my sketchbook journals are the most invaluable. They allow me complete freedom and exploration and because of that, the drawings are fresh and expressive in a way I find very difficult to achieve elsewhere.
My journals are visual diaries. In them I try to capture (as Anais says) "the living moments"
I do lots of drawings looking through my windows.
I love drawing thresholds. They are magical. They are passages to new experiences.
When you look through them you are like seeing different worlds.
Stairs have a bit of that quality too, although they don't allow for that simultaneous representation so easily.
Members of my family are often featured in my journals. Often lying down on sofas. They love it! They love lying down on sofas, I mean.
Not being featured in my journals probably.
Objects around the house is another thing I draw very often.
Bruno's world is another of my subjects.
His artwork, his bedroom/studio, him working...
A completely free, eccentric spirit, my son Bruno is.
The drawing below belong to my mum's world. When she was already ill with Alzheimer, we used to sit down together to draw.

I use my journals to write sometimes. Here below I was recording the resolution of drawing every day.
