Getting Motivated to Create...

11x17 pastel
with a liquid acrylic underpainting
white Wallis sanded paper.
I jumped right into this painting with the liquid acrylic instead of starting with a sketch.
Today was a day off of work, so I made a point to get in the studio and create.
It seems there are so many distractions that keep me from getting started.
I tell myself to

I rewarded myself after completing this piece by building a fire in the fireplace, turning on the computer and listening to Leslie Saeta's
Artists Helping Artists Radio Show while I downloaded the pictures from today's painting session.
She is an awesome palette knife painter. I love following her blog....she shares so many tips and valuable information for artists. Check it out....
She is starting a painting a day challenge for January.

It's time to set goals for the new year. Have you been thinking about your goals?
