We are hardest on ourselves, aren't we? Not that that is a bad thing, it just is why do we stress ourselves out about what we didn't do....instead of celebrate what we did accomplish. I completed a huge huge huge project! Yay!! And I think it's really good...but the voice in my head says, you are such a slacker...you can't even follow through on your resolution during week one of the New Year. Never mind the hours and hours you did work..I still felt guilty.
Really? It makes me laugh now writing about something so insignificant, but that's the conversation I had with myself (and it's not really a new one, it's one that I play out over and over again just change up the scenario.
Sigh. We are all a work in progress, aren't we?? So on to celebrating the two drawings I did manage to do this week in spite of my slackerly ways:)
Here is my first---I'm calling her Hanna. I love to draw portraits, paint portraits, and I am loving the flexibility of testing out techniques with the digital sketching. Definitely room for improvement but not too bad for the first one of the year. I'm not going to promise I'll do one a day or weekly for that matter, but I would like to carry on and do more then do a look back at the end of 2015.
I'm sure it'll be fun to see the improvements as time goes on.
Still hate my handwriting but you gotta embrace what you have or improve what you got going. :)
Here is the feather a little more close up. Not perfect mind you but not bad either ;)
So what "Aha" moments did you have this week?
Did you learn something new or have a coming to you know what talk with yourself about something stressing you out needlessly?
Curious minds wanna know!
Here are the real (faux) feathers I did that inspired the drawings:
Have a great weekend! Celebrate your triumphs this week and learn from your mis-steps!
