At Session IV Nicole Nordeman mentioned that her favorite time to create is between 12-2am. Just thinking of those hours made my fingers itch for a paint brush. I'm going through serious painting withdrawl. I used to do three or four paintings a week, now I'm lucky if I do one.
After New Community last night I was sitting in Dr. B's trying to decide how I was going to let this conference experience change me and my art. I thought about Dewitt Jones and the next right answer, I thought about Randall Wallace and creating emotions, but the thing that really hit me was that I needed to find more time for art. Since becoming a Nanny I have a lot less free time. I can't paint and baby sit at the same time. However I often blog and babysit at the same time. Why can't I take that blog time and apply it to something artistic, sketching or creative writing?
So I decided that from now on this blog is going to be more about my art (the good the bad and the ugly) and less about other stuff. The stuff that I create while I'm resisting the blog I'm going to try to post at the end of each day. Even though most of it will be embarassing, it will be a good way for me to stay disciplined and productive, and hopefully you guys will give me a little constructive criticism once in awhile.
Below are my most recent sketches.
