Happy New Year everyone! Can you believe another year has come and gone and it’s already 2014? Does anyone have any new year’s resolutions? I don’t usually do them, but I decided to set a goal for myself in the new year of making more art. A huge part of drawing is being a keen observer, and I feel like I haven’t just sat down and practiced observing and drawing what I observe very much lately. Back when I was in college I did this almost every day since I was an art major, and I miss it. So I’m going out to buy a new sketchbook and hopefully fill it with lots of sketches of goldfish! Drawing is a skill and if you don’t use it, you lose it… so it’s important to keep in practice. I also find drawing to have a calming effect, which I sure could use right now with how hectic and busy life has been! In addition to drawing, I’d also like to explore clay sculpting and, of course, photography. I hope to buy more lenses for my camera and experiment with different photography techniques. So you can look forward to more art from me in the future!
