Happy New Year + Resolutions!

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! 

 So how about you, do you have any resolutions?  Please share in the comments below! 

Setting a New Year's Resolution is easy when you're a goldfish.

Don't forget you can still get the 2014 Solid Gold calendar here to help plan out and keep track of your New Year's Resolutions. ;)


  1. Happy New Year! I hope you, your family and your goldfish have a wonderful 2014!!!

    I don't make new year resolutions, but if I did it would probably be to become more knowledgeable about fishkeeping, to get more goldfish, and to try get better at doing diy projects for my fish. :)

    I like your resolutions. I'd like to see more of your artwork. I actually want to commission one of those goldfish portraits you do for people in the very near future as well! :)

    1. That's a great thing to strive for! :)
