Welcome 2018 / January

So December 2017 is behind us and we're 2wks into 2018. Its hitting alittle rocky start, health wise, but I'm going to press on. I don't plan to return to school (Park University) till this summer, which gives me time to work on artwork (YES) and some goals in particular:

  • Hands
  • Flora and Fauna
  • Crystals
  • Blog more often about art and REALLLY try to show how I do my watercolor. I promise I will make a very concerted effort about my process as best I can.
  • More art

Pretty simple. I don't like to make resolutions, I prefer goals. Goals are more tangible and when done properly, create a more realistic approach. If you always make resolutions, you're bound to break them (in my opinion). When I decided to lose more weight (last year's goal) it became a lifestyle habit, something to do every day. A resolution is written down, becomes a daily goal (which helps your monthly goal towards the year), etc. Resolutions are a nice start, but when you want change and mean for change to happen, you have to commit to it and have a short and long term goal insight. Otherwise, a resolution is easily broken. And the biggest battle is in your head. Yep. "I can't do this" or "I can do this later, tomorrow, etc." - little excuses to put off the goal achievement. Yes, goals of any kind can be tough and you have to mean to change, create the change and commit to the change. And yes, I have started sketches on hands (ugh!) and drawn/painted crystal, some plants (succulents) and painted a turtle recently (yes! One animal out of a plethora of animals to do! Baby steps!) But, gotta practice alittle bit here and there daily.

So what are your art goals? Please share.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the universe.

Love, Light, and Laughter
