I have lots of struggles, like most people, but I’m not sure I can write about them. Seriously, I’d much rather tuck them away in the dark recesses of my brain than think about them in the daylight. But I can share my most annoying struggle (aside from losing weight, lol) and that’s my ability to grossly procrastinate with almost every personal art project I do. I don’t procrastinate with work, thankfully. And when I need to get something done (like costumes for FanExpo in three days), I’m good to go although it sometimes takes a jolt and a bunch of coffee or tea to get me moving. But personal art, portfolios or art journals? I can put that shit off forever and just keep thinking about it and dreaming about it. I have sooooo many paintings and illustrations trapped in my head, waiting to be brought to life. I even have a list. So this is the month! I’ve been sketching new art and actually putting pencil to paper and I plan on having some new personal art to share soon. Something that won’t be traded or sold or made for work. Just for me.
I painted those apples above – in one sitting! Just for fun. There was no procrastination involved so it can happen for me. Just not often. I painted those about 6 years ago. Last still life I painted I think. LOL.
