Avoidance

So heeyyyy! šŸ˜ I seriously am so guilty of avoiding all things I don’t want to face. Sometimes I don’t know I’m doing it until things build up and then BAM, something happens and I have no choice but to dig in and face the music.

So my last post I made a little goal list… which in hindsight I realize I have been avoiding the follow up post because I hadn’t reached any of my goals šŸ˜”. I think the whole point was for me to track and be accountable to myself.. but I have this rebellion inside me that will take any type of structure and do the opposite. I thought maybe this rebel was reserved for other people telling me what to do, but no, turns out I can’t tell myself what to do either.

Oh well… so time to face the music. Here is my list and my excuses why I didn’t get it done šŸ˜¬

Goals for August are:

  • finish another giant dessert painting…. I’m picturing colorful macaroons. šŸ˜«šŸ˜« I DECIDED TO USE THAT GIANT BOARD TO PAINT A GIRL..WHICH WAS A COMPLETE FAIL AND CONTINUES TO BE A CONSTANT STRUGGLE FOR ME… I SHOULD OF JUST DID THE MACAROONS
  • post weekly on YouTube šŸ˜© ALTHOUGH I ENJOY DOING THE VIDEOS IT IS REALLY A DIFFERENT FEELING CREATING ON CAMERA THAN JUST CHILLIN AND MAKING SOMETHING. ITS A WHOLE SETUP PROCESS AND LIGHTING AND BEING MINDFUL THAT THE ART IS IN FRAME AND THE VIDEO IS STILL RECORDING, I NEED TO REVISIT THIS ISSUE AND MAYBE HAVE A MORE PERMANENT SETUP THATS READY TO GO AT ANY MOMENT
  • work on more sea creature drawings and develop a concept for a finished piece šŸ˜Š I SORT OF DID THIS… I MADE A MERMAID PIECE WITH SEAHORSES.
  • write down concepts for a children’s book šŸ˜µ. NONE.. NADA.
  • oooh maybe a children’s book about sea creatures….2 birds…1 stone šŸ™‚ šŸ˜© NOPE.
  • 1 art and sip class… I’m thinking elephant. šŸ˜¢ NOPE… I DID HOWEVER DEVELOP THE ELEPHANT PAINTING AND FINISHED IT MYSELF.
  • start and finish an animated illustration of a song, a tribute to my mom, as the 1 year mark of her passing is approaching. šŸ˜” SO I MADE AN ATTEMPT AT THIS, I PICTURED SOMETHING VERY SPECIFIC…AND THOUGHT I COULD BRING THIS TO LIFE BUT FOR NOW I NEED A LITTLE MORE KNOWLEDGE ON HOW TO EXECUTE THIS IDEA.

It’s not like I was just sitting around doing nothing lol.. just not the things I told myself to do.

Here are some things I’ve been working on recently šŸ’—. I have made a few coloring pages šŸ’—. I’m currently involved in an October art challenge called #whimsyween, I am following the prompts list from my fave YouTube creator #jameslukeburkecreative James Luke Burke Creative. If you like to color feel free to print a coloring sheet and share with me if you are so inclined šŸ’—

Thanks for reading šŸ’— byeee until next time šŸ’—šŸ’—šŸ’—
