2019: The Year in Review

Happy New Year! 2020 has launched, and like every year I have goals and aspirations for the year ahead. I reflect back on 2019, and although I did many things I set out to do, I had some fails and I learned a lot about myself. My husband says I am a creature of habit - once I start a ritual, I stick with it faithfully. I tried to do this last year with my Daily Dose of Art challenge - to sketch, paint or doodle 5 to 7 days a week. I shared some of these artworks on Instagram. I started out with a passion keeping to my goal well into Spring. I faltered during the Summer months when I felt the need to unwind and play a little. Then Fall arrived and I was back into it - and the approach of the holidays set me back once again. After I completed all my work for the holiday shows, I was shopping and entertaining and off my goal completely. I learned I shouldn't beat myself up. What I did produce, I'm pretty proud of. When you view all the pieces together, it's a decent body of work. And along the way I painted new subject matter, tried new techniques and enjoyed the process. This year I will continue with my Daily Dose of Art, and I plan to sketch for the Brooklyn Art Library Sketch Book Project (check it out at ). I'm working on my 2020 goals and I'm curious to see how this year unfolds. Art is always a journey, making turns and changing direction. Let's enjoy the ride!
