Crazy Life

Wow the holidays are busy and hectic. I had hoped to take portraits of my great nephews and get some painting in while I was off for thanksgiving. It just did not happen that way. When I did try to paint I felt rushed and only got mad at myself.
When I feel this way it is best to take a deep breath and relax. I can carve out some art time when I can.
I can't wait to get back to oil classes and really want to focus my efforts this coming year. I made a to do list for my art going into 2010. I will repost them soon and take a look at where I have been successful and where I have fallen down.
How are you doing with your 2010 goals?

Keep makin' Art!

It's hard when life gets hectic and pulls you in all different directions. I'm sure you'll carve that time to do what you love to do, soon =)

I've been telling myself that I should focus my efforts a bit more. Easier said than done, though. As they say, life keeps happening.

I am going to post more on this topic later because it is a bigger theme for me....

Victoria - you are right I only go so long before I need to make more art.

Dave - You are right too. I can't make a day 26 hours long and when I try to force art I end up doubly unhappy.
