January 7, 2018
The momentum is already in high gear for a year of artistic growth and even more travel, special workshops, more demonstration videos as well as online critiques and classes. The skills I’m learning as I build my network marketing business are catapulting my art business in the direction I’ve been sluggishly heading for decades. My creative juices are flowing more vigorously than ever and I’m able to dive into projects that had grown dusty on the shelves of my mind. Needless to say … I’m looking forward to 2018.
The two major accomplishments of this first week in January are:
Week One of The Year of Influence Challenge: I’ve created a separate section of the website to document the year of sketches influenced by other artists. Each week has its own page showing my sketch, the painting that influenced it, reference materials when used, and comments about the week’s experience. Here is a link to this week’s page: Week One: Vieira da Silva
New Video: Illustrated Interview (2016) for WHCP 101.5 Cambridge, MD.
Our Daily Sketchers Facebook Group is growing stronger by the day. I am grateful for this supportive group of artists who encourage me to continue posting online and sharing the joy, the ups and downs, and the passion of my journey as an artist.
