Do you ever do something spontaneously and then abruptly question your sanity? Well, this may be one of those times for me. I’m taking Alisa Burke‘s online class Sketchbook Delight. Developing the habit of sketching has been on my list for a while. I’ve been trying but so far, not too much success.
So, I thought an online class would help me, give me that kick in the pants I apparently need. And to make it more fun, and to have someone there to “remind” me of my commitment to the class, I have some company. Carolina of The Muse of the Day has joined me on this wild ride. Go check out her incredible page from today. I am sooooo far behind and we just started!
Actually, step one is gathering supplies. That I managed to do–despite planting vegetables and spending the day with my oldest sister who is visiting. Does that sound like an excuse? It is. But what is really inexcusable is this stack of supplies. I did not need to purchase anything for this class. Not one thing. I have more than enough to cause trouble.
Is it obvious that I’ve started artistic endeavors similar to this one before? Do you think maybe, just maybe, this is a sign that I really need to get busy and DO THIS! I do. I really do. This pile of supplies is like a 2 x 4 upside the head. I have everything and more. What I need–well, what I need is discipline.
Have a good night. I’m going to spend some time this evening doing a page in my sketchbook.
