so, this year i made myself some goals for the month of july to try and keep myself from getting so depressed that i forget to live which is what usually happens.
1. go to my studio daily, even if its just to clean up a bit, or read or something.
i haven't been too bad at this. not daily, but i've been conscious about being artful, and it's been more often than not.
2. write a chore list and check off accomplishments.
again, not too bad about keeping up with this. i've been lazy with the lists a few times, but have still done things so thats a great step.
3. drink my water
meh. could do better with this
4. concentrate on healthy foods and no grazing.
another meh. i start the day with good intentions and then i start to mess up in the afternoon. always a work in progress with that one.
5. less tv, less facebook, more artistic searches during computer time.
doing ok with this one. i used to have the tv on at all times, just for the 'company', but i have made a real effort to cut that crap out.
6. one sketch a day
doing pretty well with this one! in 16 days i've done 13 sketches. though a couple days i think i did 2 a day. on my sons anniversary i know i did 2.
i've also finished an amazing painting. this thing is huge and i'm thrilled with it.
and here are a few sketches i've done
well, her face shows up anyway. sorry its so light
