10 x 14 watercolor
I painted this beautiful little horse a few years ago, I fell in love with the expression in his eye and his gorgeous dark grey coat and silver mane. He belonged to a good friend of mine and I knew his sire very well. He looked so much like his father. I thought his name 'Legacy' very fitting. He was stunning, and a joy to paint.
Lately I have just not been feeling my artwork. And it's frustrating, very frustrating. I mentioned this a couple weeks ago but I didn't want to dwell on it, so I threw myself into a new painting and drawings and just felt. . . blegh. I got nothing.
In an effort to change those feelings I am shaking things up on my blog. I'm going to have a new blogging schedule where I post Monday thru Friday. I'm taking it as a challenge. Sometimes that's just what I need :) Here's what I've come up with.
Monday: Motivational Mondays - I've seen this around the blogosphere and decided I want to make it a weekly feature here. Something I really like to read on a blog is what motivates people to create, it inspires me to work harder and is just plain uplifting. I'm pretty excited about this one actually, I hope you like it too :)
Tuesday: Sketchbook Tuesdays - This will be the same as sketchbook Mondays, just moved to Tuesday. Because Motivational Tuesdays just didn't sound as cool as Motivational Mondays :)
Wednesday: Work In Progress Wednesday - This is another one I've seen around the blogging world (it's pretty popular with writers in particular) and since I'm kind of a slooooow painter I need to have a day to post my work in progress. And I'm fascinated with the process of artists and I thought maybe you guys would be too :)
Thursday: What's Inspiring Me Now - I thought I would originally just have this be 'artists that inspire me' but really there are lots of things that inspire me. This is where I talk about and show you what that is. It could be paintings, drawings, photography, writing, or even just something from my everyday life.
Friday: Finished Works Friday - I am going to try really hard to have something new here every week, but in the event that I don't (my life can be crazy hectic sometimes, I'm sure you can relate) I will post a piece of my finished work, whether it's something new or old.
What do you think? Sound good? Any suggestions? I'm all ears :)
Also, I'm sorry if I haven't made it around to your blog lately, I'm trying my hardest to visit everybody! Thanks to all of you for stopping by here whenever you get the chance, you're the best!
