I'm hoping to produce a lot more art this year than the last 4yrs.
my little's one is 4 1/2 and I do a lot with her, also my other 2 which are a lot older and can't leave out my lovely wife. Family first.
I remember being in a DR. office and I c'n some beautiful pic's hanging around. I asked who's art work and they where the secretaries art.
So we started talking about her art and me being an artist. Come to find out, she told me she has quit doing her art.
I asked why, she pretty much told me, kids, life, just to busy, no time.
I couldn't just quit, I had @ age of 17, close to when I got out of school. Well, I kinda made a vow to myself when I started back up @ the age of 30 to not quit like I did before, but I have slown down a good amount, due to a new family member, life.
I wanted to be there for my little ones needs, not just put it on my wife, but be a loving father, husband and enjoyed the time, and will still enjoy much more time with her along with all the others I'm surrounded with.
In time, a child can do more and if you got one like mine, kinda wants to start becoming little independent. LOL!
So I have been able to take some of my sketches worked on throughout the last few yrs and last 6 month doing more with them. I'm gaining the ability to do more with more time.
I don't really have much of a following, but to those that have been fav'in these new pic's I recently added and pressing on the watch button, well, thank you so very much. It truly means a lot to me. I ask that you stay tuned in, If all keeps going, I have more to come that I hope you will enjoy.
Oh, and the llama, much appreciation for those cute furry things.
So, to all my jibbery jabbery, I'm really trying to bring a point, that I'm sure you all know, but it doesn't hurt to just share for encouragement to anyone that is going through busy times, so busy that you aren't getting to draw much, just keep going. Even If you only can draw 20 min one day and 35 min next day, shoot, even 10 min, just keep doing what you can. It all trains your membrain.
If you are self teaching, keep on. You will get better and better as time goes on. I'm self taught, not that I'm here trying to impose that I'm great or anything, It's that continuing even when it was here and there it has helped me fill that void I have a passion for.
Just don't be like the secretary (hope she started back up again), do it for your hearts passion, and if you don't get fav's, or comments, O well, just keep doing it. It is part of you. It's not about what others think all the way, but you.
I cherish all art work, especially those that are self taught, seeing a person when they start out to what they are doing when they get that job creating concept everything.
I don't really care if I get a big job for my art, as long as I'm able to create, I'm filling that void.
Slow Progress, Is Better Than No Progress.
