Good Morning Friends!
Happy Friday! It's Day 2 of my "Morning After Challenge" and I completed a large piece for a big book I'm hoping to make 11 x 15. Basically one of my owl characters doodled up colored in with SOHO watercolors (one of my demos I did at Jerry's Art of the Carolina's recently) . I have to admit, this piece took longer than I really should have spent on it...but once I got started, I couldn't stop! If you are stuck for something to do with your pages, try taking a simple illustration and doodling it up. It's lots of fun! Tomorrow I'm going to change things up a bit and do a page in another journal that's vastly different then what I've been featuring. :) Stay tuned!
I hope you have lots of goodness planned for the weekend, I'm sure it includes at least a little holiday preparation, cooking, cleaning, maybe shopping, if you are lucky perhaps some time out with some family and friends. I know I have all the above planned plus arting of course. I never stop 'arting' at this point, it's more then just a job, it's an obsession, a passion...something that I want to do almost all the time. I want to be better and better at what I do. I think about things to do all the time and often get caught up with having several things going on at once because if I have an idea, I start doing it somewhere or in some fashion. Maybe it's starting a new painting, or perhaps its writing a few notes down. Sometimes I'll journal it. Or if it's something I don't have, I stop what I'm doing and go get supplies for it. There in lies the problem...starting and stopping stuff. Not having patience to just wait. Wait to you are done with something else, wait for a better time. I need to get away from the I want it now and want it done now mentality. I have come a long way in some respects. Still others, I have a long way to go.
