Slow And Steady Wins The...

WAIT!!!!!!

Hold Everything!  Who said this was a race?  *zeesh*  Art, like life, is a journey.  And I am frigging going to learn how to enjoy it!!!  If people don't like my path, my choices, the way I draw my lines, than tough 
pa-tooties.

I am going to do art MY WAY!!!!!
(here are some sketches I've been working on for the Tomi dePaola SCBWI contest *due in 11 days :)*)




I am drawing daily, slowly and steadily, because that is just how I do things.  I am a processor...and a very messy sketcher.
I am going to finish my Christmas card this year.
I am going to complete (2) very special commissions for a friend who has been waiting patiently, since August, for me to get my head out of my rump.
I am going to enter in the 4th Annual Regional SCBWI-Carolinas Art Contest *due Feb. 28*
In 2013 I am going to complete a weekly 'Mug Shot' portrait.
AND...
I am going to take one of the 32 PiBoIdMo ideas I generated in November and turn it into a picture book dummy!!!
*I officially get to post this 'Winning' image by Ward Jenkins*

Yep! I am a winner simply by participating and completing a goal.
And, by the list of things, it looks like I have many more winning moments in store.
Stay tuned.

    1. Thank you, Joanne. I wish they were as effortless to draw. I still stress over each sweeping line. I see them so clearly in my mind but getting the hand to cooperate is another story. BUT, I do love drawing animals best, so it make my heart sing to know that you find them appealing.
