I thought it would be appropriate to design a banner that better represented what I do. So, why not a sketch of my painting setup? I’ve kept my bear in there, on the can holding the brushes. If you are wondering what’s with the bear – read my about page.
The New Year, has given me a recharge. I’m more committed to being creative than I was at the start (of 2014). I’m excited to pursue all the different things I’m interested in (painting, illustration, surface design, animation). I’m trying to doodle in my sketchbook every day. I ask myself for only 5 minutes. Even on the busiest days, I can spare that right? It’s relaxing, and it allows me time to come up with ideas. I usually do it early in the morning, while I wait for the kids to get ready. It puts me in a creative mindset for the day. And because of that, I usually end up creating later in the day.
Hope your New Year is off to a creative start too!

Great choice and yes, at least 5 minutes is doable.

Thank you Sharon! ❤️
Hmmm….Yes…sounds good, and looks good!
I’m still starting slowly… 🙂
Thank you Janina. Slow and steady wins the race. Plenty of years I started with a bang and quickly fizzled out 😄
Slow and steady…yes, I agree! I’ve slowed down considerably and really enjoy it…lol.
Looks great!! And 5 minutes should be doable….there will be tough days and somedays you may spend 5 hours…. 😉
Thanks Rebecca! Yes, hoping some days are long periods. And some days just 5-10 minutes – but it’s something. 😀
Love it! It’s you! Get that time in. You have a gift!
Thank you, happy new year! 🙂
Slow start here, low motivation/inspiration…. but it’ll come! 🙂
I know it will come to you! Today I sat down and had the hardest time coming up with an idea. But, I know the more times I sit, the more the ideas will come.
It will, I know. Sometimes it just takes its sweet time LOL 😀
When I am at work I am full of ideas and plans and by the time I get home I only feel hungry and sleepy. It maybe the winter, snow and lack of sunshine…
