Welcome 2008!!

One of the steps I wanted to make this year, 2008, was to increase my artwork, this is to work on the 'beautiful' part of my theme.

My daughter on Christmas Eve.

I loved art as a child and teen, and followed it so far, only to stop because I did not see its ‘usefulness’. Someone should have told me that a God given talent need not be on a par with the sciences in its uses, but rather be something that it is imperative to explore as far as I could.

So now I will.

I have subscribed to some art blogs, with the idea of being inspired. And I will make some art aims for the year…

My Art Aims 2008

  1. Draw every day. Even if it is just a little thing.
  2. Do at least one of the EDM challenges a week.
  3. Diversify… learn to use the watercolours and acrylics more :)
  4. Make a sketchbook. Maybe even a travel sketchbook… but at least a nature one!

Four simple, little aims. I think I can manage that! I’ve already started!!

Drawing of the Day #1

  1. drawing is one of my new year's aspirations as well. I'll show you mine if you show me yours!

  2. Wow. Now see, if I could draw like that, I'd try to draw everyday, too. Instead, everything I try to draw ends up looking like a very young, probably physically challenged, monkey drew it. Very nice, Rachel! And Happy New Year!
