Have you noticed the trend on blogs of selecting a word for the year? I have been debating what word I want for my year, it could be “create”, it could be “vibrancy”, both of those struck me as worthy of being selected… but instead, I am choosing a word that might come as surprise to many.
If I am going to improve my art and see my life as an artist grow, I simply must discipline myself to work on it regularly. I love doing it, but so often I put it off, and don’t start. I need to at least sketch four or five times a week, but preferably be working on more than just simple sketches and putting in time on my paintings, try new mediums, and learn new techniques.
