Doing It.

"Starry Sky" watercolor and casein ~ 8 x 8 (sold)

Today, I stumbled upon this wonderful paragraph, so I'm sharing.

"We can’t get good at something solely by reading about it. And we’ll never make giant leaps in any endeavor by treating it like a snack food that we munch on whenever we’re getting bored. You get good at something by doing it repeatedly. And by listening to specific criticism from people who are already good at what you do. And by a dedication to getting better, even when it’s inconvenient and may not involve a handy bulleted list." Merlin Mann

Any strides I've made recently have come from lots of studio time... For me, there's just no other way than lots of brush mileage.

We got so much snow today it's unreal.

Aerial #7...until I think of a better title....just finished, hot off the easel...11 x 10 inches
watercolor and casein....

The aerial image that inspired this one, is of Jackson's Point in Ontario...(I pushed the island closer to the land :) ) That is where I spent the weekend with some of my artist friends from WetCanvas. Lots of fun with a terrific group of people!
