Good Morning!! I am starting my New Year's resolutions early! One of the resolutions is to get up, have coffee (because without it, life is not going to happen), and then start practicing---sketching, drawing, painting in something that makes me uncomfortable, etc. Painting in black, white, creams..etc..makes me totally uncomfortable. It is very hard for me..because you all know that I REALLY wanted to make something as simple as these baby shoes all hot pink with a turquoise background, and possibly a splash of bright yellow..hahah. I have the absolute hardest time with neutrals...I find them boring, and trite. I have a friend named Lisa Patencio, who paints almost strictly in blacks, whites and grays...and her work is amazing, NOT AT ALL BORING, and very beautiful. I think I want to be her when I grow up..hehehe.

Anyway..Feel free to join in with me, and take the first hour of your day to sketch and force yourself to do something different. Doing the same old stuff day after day after day is not what being an artist is about. So..step out, and do something different.

Live Artfully!
