I just wanted to say Happy New Year and thanks for all of your support this past year! 2015 was tough. Thank the Lord for his guidance. Moving house is hard enough but moving to a new state is crazy. My art journal was a safe place to express myself. I'm getting better at figuring out when I should push through a hard painting and when it's time to cover it up with gesso!
In the new year, I want to waste less time worrying about what everybody else is doing and just do me! I've already started planning a lot more (and I mean setting realistic goals).
The other day I showed up 1 hour early to work by accident. Can you believe I missed out on 30 more minutes of painting?!? I was so wrapped up in my projects I must have mistook the time. I thought to myself in a few years I won't have this problem because I'll be a full-time artist LOL!!!
My goals for the new year:
- Create more online classes. I have a painting class in development right now.
- Cut back on french fries (not completely though are you crazy)!
- Make a Facebook page for my artwork.
- Post more YouTube videos.
- Find a local art group to join.
- Take a photography class downtown.
Here are a few of my fav art journal pages from 2015.
