Who do you make art for?

I had a lovely long holiday weekend.  Having fun with friends and fun in my art room. I worked on a few experiments that when so wrong. In fact so wrong that I laughed so hard. I mostly worked in my art journal this weekend after my experiments. Art journaling is freeing for me. Some of my journals are for rantings, things I've learned about myself or some are just for fun. This is a page from my Dylusions journal. I realized this weekend that I need to make art for myself and not worry about what others think. I go through phases where I worry about it and it stops my mojo a little. Working in my art journals brings me back into perspective. 

This journal page just came to me when my perspective came back. I love paint and collage and it just came together.  After is was finished I realized the only quote I can put on it was "I make art for me".  I love quotes and have a collection of them but this one was perfect.

 
Here is a close up of the layers.
 
 
 
Julie from Balzer Designs: Art Journal Every Day asked the questions, how do we feel about using quotes in our art journals and do we use them.  A big YES, I adore quotes and use them in journals and many other things.  Go over and see every ones pages. I'm linking this page to Art Journal Every Day.
 
Do you make art for yourself or do you feel the pressure of making art for others expectations?
 
Thank you so much for stopping by!
