Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking.... perhaps to much thinking and not enough doing. And it is time for me to move forward to a better schedule with my family and my art.
I fully support the organizations I do volunteer work for but it is time to say 'no' and cut back. Time for me to find other ways to support them in ways that do not take up a lot of time.
Now I really need to take a better approach to my business. And one of the first things I started was claiming Tuesday as studio day. I told my husband if I was to get any art created I needed to be creating on a regular schedule. 'No' phone calls (yep there is that 'no' again), 'No' internet, 'No' appointments, and 'No' cooking on Tuesday!
I read this week on facebook where someone posted an image of an artist and the caption was don't wait for inspiration just show up and get to work. That is exactly what I am going to do, show up on Tuesday and get to work. I had a few hiccups of interruption but for the most part I had a good start to a new painting. A watercolor on canvas of our Presque Isle Lighthouse. It's not complete yet but so far I like how it is turning out. See pics below.
I feel like I've always been on a journey but this is different. I'm in control now and looking forward to the end result. I love being an artist! So my blog here is also going to focus on that journey along with the creating of art.
