Do you feel guilty when "nothing" is accomplished? No "work" is done? I do. I have to fight that feeling all the time. I don't make resolutions - but I already knew that I was going to read through the Bible (oops - now I'm accountable to all of you) this year. I haven't done that in a long time. That's not work exactly - but it is part of a promise to God and myself to spend more time with Him. Then there is the issue of my art time. Do I work - making things I will try to sell - or do I "play"? Today I chose play. I doodled for about an hour - at the end of that tiime, I had this girl's face. I added all kinds of color and then a paper/fabric flower for her hair. I just let my pen walk across the paper - she's not beautiful or heaven forbid perfect and real looking. But I like her - I made her and she is art! So I will try to continue spending time doodling and drawing. And of course - coloring - mostly with paint but I have every other coloring tool known to mankind as well. I need to remember in 2012 (and always) that ART is FUN!
