Now that the holiday breaks are over and my family has gotten back into routine, I've come up with a plan for this new year. (Well, you know, we'll see how it goes...) Every day on Thursday I HAVE to do something art related before I can do anything else during the rest time that my children have. I've really been wanting to get back to doing art regularly, but I let life get in the way too much. Maybe this plan will help. I don't know what I'll post and what I won't, but we'll see how it goes. 

On another art related note, I'm going to go back to art being primarily my hobby and quit worrying about what I can do that will sell in my Etsy shop. That was taking some (ok, a lot) of the fun out of it. I'm not trying to get commissions either. Making money is nice, but I don't like to be told what to do. :XD:
I do like offering commissions or art as gifts though. It makes people really happy. 

I hope to stick to my plan, but I can't make any promises. You never know how life will go, so I'm just going to go with the flow.

I'm a pretty varied person, as in I have many interests and titles. Wife and mom are my most important labels, followed closely by artist if anyone would be so kind as to consider me one.
As for art...
It is the balance in my life. I don't just like it or love it, I need it. It’s the outlet that God gave me to calm me down when stress and anxiety try to take over. Art is my passion, and I want to use that passion to bless others.

Just a Note

There's no need to thank me for faves or llamas unless you just want to. I faved it because I like it, and it inspires me to want to keep doing art.
If you do thank me, you are most welcome! :D

Thank you so much for the :+fav: of my Owen Sound Sunset watercolour painting, it was nice to be working on something warm and inviting as a summer sunset in the cold of winter here. :-)

You're welcome. Warm scenes and warm thoughts are nice... seems so far away though as the alerts on my phone keep telling me updates on the next winter storm warning. I'm really ready for spring this year.

Here we haven't had the storms really, just some very cold wind chills in the - 45C range to wake up to in the mornings. I am ready for Spring as well, but here it is about 8 weeks away still.

Oh yes, I looked back at your profile and saw you're from Canada. Wow, that is much colder than here. I shouldn't complain at all! I live in the eastern portion of the US so we've been getting the storms.
