The interesting thing about reviewing my list of goals is that the majority of them are things I should be doing on a regular basis... an everyday part of my new career. I didn't know this when I started, of course. I thought these things could be done, checked off the list, and committed to memory for future use. Not so! I must be reading, writing, drawing, reviewing, critiquing, and learning every single day!
That sounds pretty good to me! But I've been finding it hard to get anything done lately, with summer, Father's Day, vacations, birthdays, my day job, new babies in the family...with life itself! I find it extremely difficult to work on a drawing when right next to my "studio" (you know, that kitchen table I keep mentioning) is a pile of luggage that needs to be put away, and a sink full of dishes, and family stopping by to say hello.
Sounds like I need to finally put together that real studio of mine, doesn't it?
Oh, but there are so many things I should and could be doing right now! I have a book dummy to put together, and art I want to send to ripple to raise money for the oil spill, and two websites to work on, and Illustration Fridays and owls to draw...
"Aw, stop making excuses and do it already!!!"
And that's my number one goal for the summer. Tied with that is my book dummy, which I can do while I'm at work. *wink wink* Time to stop blogging and time to start mooooooving!
Oh, and P.S...
I got my pelican art from Olivia Bouler the other day! Isn't it gorgeous??
