In my sketchbook - February 1, 2017

“The secret to so many artists living so long is that every painting is a new adventure. So, you see, they’re always looking ahead to something new and exciting.” – Norman Rockwell.

Yesterday I did not paint so of course I was looking forward to working on one of my many art projects.

On my easel today is a portrait I am painting in the same style as the one I posted yesterday.

She is still very much a work in progress but I am past the scary stage now and she has a face that is more human than zombie like.

I can already see my errors. No matter. I will correct what I can and then move forward.

This blog keeps me steady on course towards my goal of becoming an artist.  I don’t know when that will happen.  I mean, when, at what point, can I call myself an artist?  Sometimes I feel like I am closer to my goal and other times,  when frustration sets in, or when I am veering in yet another artistic pursuit, I feel like I am further than ever.

There is so much to learn.  So many possibilities and I have the time now to fully explore each one of them if I want to.

You can guess what I will be doing tomorrow. One more project to look forward to completing.
