Today, Saturday.....a few more days until the new year. One of my plans this coming year is to accomplish something. It sounds easy enough, doesn't it. How many of us have started something, and never finished? I have many creative interests, I would like to settle on one, or better said I would like to do at least one of them good, better....I seem to start many things, some will last a year or two, some a day...sometimes I think going out and buying all the things I need to do a new creative endeavor is the creative endeavor. Its like the hunt mentality. I have done quilting, carving, painting, mocaics, clay, recently I bought all the supplys to do sodering, it still hangs in a bag on my door handle. Sketching...I have the books, pencils, paper....But this year I choose to start small to take baby steps to achieve some noticable improvements. I really admire people who can sketch. I have taken classes, are you born with it, or can a person become an artist. I have painted things that amaze some people. I am not consistant. I want to be consistant. I want to amaze myself. So I have plans this year, one of them is to keep this journal, so I can be accountable.
