Art Days & Don’ts

One thing I’ve found out, much to my own detriment sometimes, is that there are days when I can create, draw and make significant progress. Other days it all goes to pot basically. No matter how hard I try, nothing really works or my hand to eye coordination is so off that I might as well scribble.

I now know… just to stop. Accept that today it’s just not gonna happen and leave well alone.

I make the most now of those good days. I no longer panic. I can’t force myself to work on something when my mind can be easily distracted. I’m ok with that.

When the going is good, I lose hours without noticing. I feel like I really have achieved something that visually represents where I’m at…

Just wait

Spring will be here soon

Stay with us

It won’t seem as cold if we are together …

It was absolutely freezing but my hounds loved it.

from small things..

I’m hoping for inspiration..

This week has been a big push. Finally my online art store is open. I’ve pretty much been correcting bits and bobs all week. I’ve also been trying to navigate some kind of plan of what’s to come. I’ve needed some art time too, but even that’s been difficult to squeeze in.

I’m looking back over social media to see which of my artworks have been liked or featured the most. This will determine which art to add on my store to sell. I’ve learnt through social media that sometimes something that you think isn’t good enough to share, is in fact someone’s favourite. It’s a process that I think might take some time, but it’s always good to go back over what you’ve done before. It rekindles an interest in a process or media that you haven’t used in a while.

During this I came across this illustration from 2014. It’s still one of my personal favourites.

I’m now starting to doodle… back with an ink pen in my hand, whilst I’m thinking, from small things, Big things Grow.

Here is some new photography from this week. This was taken in my back garden with my Nikon, just as the full moon was rising.
