Getting unstuck…

30 Jun

My week 6-28-16

Painting my week…making mini books, painting the sky, the sea, organizing computer files, dealing with a road-construction detour, upgrading to Windows 10 and rearranging some bookcases.

 

Recently I found myself stuck… I wasn’t blogging, wasn’t sure what to blog about. I wasn’t doing much art, wasn’t working in my journals or sketchbooks and wasn’t sure what to do about that either.   When that happens one of the best things to do is to take a class, to sit on the other side of the desk for a change. This time I went to class online, and am happily attending The Sketchbook Skool (www.sketchbookskool.com) . I’m having the best time… I’m challenging myself, getting back into watercolors, colored pencils, drawing outside, journaling about my art and sharing my work and my insecurities with my classmates…and getting a lot of positive feedback.  One of my favorite assignments was painting my week.  If you’re feeling stuck take a class, online or off, and in the meantime grab a sketchbook and paint or draw your week. — Michele
