…..I’m not a believer in New Year’s resolutions but I have set a challenge for myself for 2018
With all that went on last year in my personal life I felt that my art suffered. Once I stopped teaching I found little time to pursue my art. Ironic isn’t it that retirement was the reason for not making art but rather than go into all the details as to why that happened I want to focus on the now and how that will change.
Recently I complained to one of my followers that I couldn’t find time to make art because my studio space was still in a shambles from the renovation. This very wise woman suggested that I take my sketchpad and just start drawing anywhere in the house. So that’s exactly what I did and when everyone had gone to bed I would open my book and start making marks. Then I added some watercolour. I’m loving the process and have decided to make art every day, even if it’s just a doodle.
I started the challenge on New Year’s Eve. Here is my first piece of art made on the last day of 2017.
I will try to post a work of art every day or if I start on something larger I will post the progress on a daily basis.
