Journal History

A Reflection...

I'm not always active in this lovely site, I know.. 
and it's sad because, I lost contact to deviant-artists that I made friends with before. Many of them have their accounts closed down.:( 
But.. One of the reasons why I have the urge to check in on my account is because I want to reminisce and reflect. Also, I want to "change my image" in this site.** I looked at my old journals, drawings, and photos that I took before and obviously they are mostly sad, depressing, and painful.:raincloud: As I checked on them, I cannot help but cringe and feel overwhelming embarrassment.  I can't help but ask myself, "Was I really this annoying, desperate, and negative?" As I check on newer and newer artworks, the themes of my works get a little better and better and more colours are added. But it is funny how majority of my works are still about my lonely, dark past.

:sun:The beautiful part of this little journey in my small gallery is that I mostly do not remember how the ideas get in my head, but suddenly they are drawn on paper. There are some works that make me suddenly say, "Wait, I drew this?":O_o: And that's what made me reflect deeply because I see that this site is more than just sharing your art and talent and getting a lot of attention. It is also about self-expression. It is interesting how I see my gallery as my life story. It started as a 13-year-old teen who is all depressed and heartbroken mostly because she does not want to move out from her beloved country, to living a life of pretense, to becoming empty, but desperate for love, to suddenly becoming an optimistic Jesus-freak!:rofl: It does sound so random, but I also realized how becoming an artist can be a journey. Personally, I still don't know what kind of artist I am: a comic artist? A painter? A photographer? But through art, I was busy trying to find ways just to express myself that I didn't know I was making an interesting story through my works.

:damphyr:Now I bet that all artists, if not most, may look back on their past works they had done and feel as if they are looking at pictures in a photo album. And suddenly realize that they just created a story through images (or for writers, through the emotions poured in their stories).
**Now, going back to my purpose of "changing my image" here, what I meant is to keep on drawing, painting, and capturing photos in order to continue the story that I have already started. Obviously, I am way different than how I was years ago. NO more heartbreaks, homesickness, depression and emptiness. But majority of my works still give off a sad message. So I want people to see and know the 'new' me. I am expecting and maybe everyone else may be expecting to see more colorful works and optimistic images in my gallery.:boing:

So, bottom line: A new chapter in an artist's life means new themes of their works that may reflect their life, emotion, or inspiration. And through an artist's works, s/he is making her or his true self known.:painter:
