A new painting for a new year
After weeks of thought, I've made some choices about how my creative life will change in the future. If you have been here with me for the last year or two you will already know about my difficulty in choosing one special part of my art life to concentrate on. It has been hard for me to settle down on one thing, I love all the things I've tried. Remember? Acrylics, colored pencils, lino cuts, collage, polymer clay. Everything has been fun. I've learned a lot.
This is the year that I get serious about my art. I have already enrolled in a class with a local artist whose work I respect. There are several juried shows I will enter, and there are two shows to get ready for this month. Having a large desk calendar on my studio wall has helped me see my time better.
These are my resolutions, or more importantly, my heart's choices.
1. I will concentrate on figurative art, my real love after all is said and done.
2. I will spend at least 4 times as long in the studio as I do on the computer, the theft of my time.
3. I will be a student of polymer clay techniques, using it as a hobby.
