Time for art


IMG_0704, originally uploaded by kquilts.

This picture was taken at Sonoma Coast State Beach, up along the bluffs we hiked a week ago. I really liked this shot because of the bumble bee in it. I will be working on a painting or wc pencils (not sure yet which- aybe bot) of this one sometime this week and just thought if I put the picture up now, I will be more likely to follow through with this idea. Making the time to do the art work is hard for me and so I am looking for ways to encourage myself to do this. We shall see if this works.

I'm here to give you encouragement. I'd love to see a painting of this :-) No pressure - just encouragement. I certainly understand and emphathize with how hard it is to follow through. I have a very hard time with it myself. It seems that we're full of ideas, but following through is not so easy... Remember, encouragement, now pressure is coming your way.

last sentence, I meant "not" I typed "now" -- sorry...

Thanks Deborah. This is definitely one I plan to paint. I am working on organizing my art room right now. It also houses sewing equipment and treadmill. I just need to find the top of the desk (grin)

It will be a great little painting when you get it done. I've tried blogging to force me to get something done. I hope it works better for you than it does for me!

Thanks. I haven't started it yet, but it is one I would like to do.
