On her blog, Roz Wound Up, Roz occasionally writes about journaling myths. Recently, I was listening to someone talk about a painting they did in their journal that took two hours and it made me realize that I have my own journal myth, or preconception--that work in a journal should be done quickly, or be a sketch, not "real" work. While often the journal can be used for quick studies or sketches done on the fly, there is no reason it shouldn't also get full attention when time allows. So, last night I did some "myth-busting" and spent more time than usual (but not two hours!) on a watercolor of some peaches.
