Time to commit

Hello friends,

I have made a big decision. I am committing!!! To what? To writing blog posts. My commitment is for once a week. But…I am allowing myself to post as much as I want.

I am in Alyson Stanfield’s Art Biz Coach Bootcamp…click on the link and read all about it. This, along with other classes I have taken from Alyson have changed the way I am approaching my art business….Yes, “Business” because that’s what it is.
I also belong to Alyson’s Art Biz Incubator. Last week I went to our member site and heard a wonderful talk between Alyson and artist Janet Vanderhoof .
Janet spoke about a big challenge she had set for herself for the year 2012. The challenge was to paint a painting a week. I was so inspired and motivated by what she did that it made me look at myself and think about a big project for me to do and write blog posts about.
In the year 2011 I was part of #draw365 on Twitter and successfully completed 365 ink drawings throughout that year.
This year I am going to copy/reproduce…Janet’s idea (which I’m sure she won’t mind) and do a painting a week. I also want to write posts about the process of my big challenge. In other words, I want to post images of my work in progress as well as finished.
You will see mixed media paintings done in my studio and ink drawings, watercolors or guache

which I do at home.

Instead of just posting all this on facebook like I usually do, I will be posting here on my blog. My commitment  is for every Wednesday but don’t be surprised if you see me here more often.
Thank you Janet and Alyson for the wonderful talk.
One more thing, tell me what you think about my new website/blog.
