For me this year has been pretty static from an arts standpoint. I’ve participated in several arts markets and fairs but the results have been unsuccessful. Overall I am burnt out on participating in these things and it’s time to look at other venues.
Additional circumstances have kept me from really focusing on my art and blogging but I haven’t quit drawing altogether. I’ve just been doing it differently. Per my last post dated on “Let’s not talk about how long it’s been,” my phone has been serving as a canvas.
I have to admit, it’s a lot easier to create art digitally. I don’t need paints, drawing utensils, canvas or paper. It’s not messy and I can produce something in a relatively short amount of time. I doubt that I’ve spent more than an hour on the majority of my creations.
Here are a couple of images that I’ve produced – “He Blessed My Soul” and “Fall Day.” I’ve built quite a portfolio this year.
Mind you, I’m still eager to get back to watercolor pencils and acrylics. As a matter of fact, I still have a chalk pastel piece that I am aching to complete.
