My Master Plan

As I am sitting here, trying to get through my last semester of law homework and all I can think about is how much I have *not* been drawing and painting. And because of this, I am going to challenge myself, and others who follow me right this moment. Every week, until February 14th I am going to draw, paint or create 3 pieces of artwork a week and post it on here. If I do not, I will of course upset anyone who sees this and be very embarrassed. So I kind of have to now, don’t I!

I’ve been so busy with other things, I have made it a habit of pushing out my most favorite skill. I want to get it back, and this is the way! So starting this week, there will be 3 new pieces, be it sketches, painting, or whatever in a new page titled ‘The Master Month Plan’. If you love to draw, paint, or whatever, please feel free to join me in this challenge. I hope this gets me out of my artistic rut!
May the challenge begin!!!

Website of the Day: Windsor and Newton

I just stumbled upon this lovely article, which gives some great advice! I thought I would share it, because it is very inspiring and gave me some ideas to help get yourself out there as an artist! It is an article on the Windsor and Newton website.

The article talks about the challenges new artists face, and how what you can do to make it easier to get yourself seen.
To all those struggling, new artists out there:
You can do it! Don’t give up!
Just like any career, you need to research, research research. Know what your getting into, the troubles your going to face; and always look at every opportunity!!!
Sure, it’s hard. But what isn’t in life? 😉
Broken Down
I leave you all today with a picture I took, that I plan on painting. It is a very, very old truck which I think  would be lovely in watercolor. It was taken up on a deserted hill- who knows how long it had been there! Simply amazing what nature can do.

Stay creative!
