Happy New Year!

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 31, 2013, 6:03 AM
Wishing you all a happy and safe New Year's celebration. This past year (2013) has been pretty good art wise with my art world expanding, developing more and growing. I hope next year will be just as good and I hope you all have a good year with what you do.

Progress

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 22, 2013, 8:11 AM
Artistic slumps, and slumps in general, are a unpleasant part of life that many of us have had to endure. I think the impact of a slump depends upon how we handle it. As a few of you are aware, I have been in a slump since the 2012 holidays. To help relieve the effect of the slump I finally remembered advice I have given to and received from others:
Go to a museum/gallery/website and look at other art.
Clean your workspace for art making.
Make random marks, doodles, sketches. Just do. Making art for just the sake of making it can pull one out of a creative slump.
Surround one self with other creative people.
Do not over think art making.
Change your scenery (this could go along with cleaning one's workspace).
Take a journey. You do not have to go far. A journey could take take place near where you live.

I cannot remember all the suggestions so feel free to add to the list.

Though I have been in a slump, it does not mean I can stop work. I have agreed to paint a wolf statue (Howl for UWG), a project similar to Cows on Parade, and an alphabet book for which I have done some illustrations has gained the interest of a small local publisher. So, I have been trying to work on both these projects dutifully to meet deadlines. Other projects are in need of completion too: commissions, domestic work (renovations, repairs, a fence, and more).
I have been busy but have not felt like I have accomplished much.
