I decided if I was ever going to 'be an artist when I grew up', first I need to grow up, and secondly, I need to do art! For years, I've been turning out only one or two pieces a year, which is really unacceptable. So, sometime in February, I decided to get serious. I layed out an outline of several juried exhibits and competitions I wanted to enter, and came up with a series of deadlines. That is the kind of catalyst I usually need to get working.
First, I finally got around to drawing the Texas Longhorn hand gesture I'd been talking about doing for over a year. I'm going to make prints of it soon, that will be for sale.
