There is great satisfaction in doing things entirely for your own sake. I am very happy when I am able to express myself through my art. It helps get me in the right headspace (with awesome music and tasty snacks involved). I spend a lot of time browsing reddit, r/ArtPorn, and other art channels (sadly, hardly ever a participant, but maybe that will change), and I get instant gratification from viewing artwork by others.
I am challenging myself to dedicate time to doing something I love by completing one painting a week (new painting every Thursday). I think this sort of long-term commitment will outweigh any other form of simple immediate gratification, and I get to continue doing something I love. That in itself, is the ultimate satisfaction.
1 new painting/artwork every Thursday.

Hello fellow artists and/or lurkers!
I created a challenge for myself to follow through. I hope more will join me, and don’t forget to tag me, because I LOVE seeing new artwork. Can’t wait!

Wow! It’s been over a year since I’ve had this blog going! I really, REALLY need to step up my game, and pick up the brush again. I’m going to post up a challenge I’m making in a bit.

Well, not cold in the Midwest. It is 101 degrees here…Yikes! But on a more positive note, I just finished illustrating a book starring this little character.
