January - it must be Art-A-Day month! Last year I participated for the first time and though I don't live in town, I so enjoyed seeing all your art develop and wished I could be there in person to meet you and join the art show. I participated when I could and that participation started me on a year long exploration of all sorts of artistic experimentation for the first time ever. (Thanks Bobi!)
I tried some mixed media, some collage, some painting......and always, photography. I successfully completed a 365 day (photo a day) project (boy am I glad that's over!). So here I am again this year, ready to try to expand and improve my skills. I read Jim's post about sketching and, oddly enough, that's one of my goals this year - to improve my almost non-existent drawing skills.
It's tough to share pieces or sketches or art that I'm not confident about or that I feel aren't very skilled. But, this is an opportunity for me to practice and learn....so, here goes.
Day #1, shoes. Not as cool as Jim's cowboy boots, but I don't own any cowboy boots, so this is what I wear most days...my Clarks clogs. Comfy. At least I can tell they're shoes! :)
I actually welcome advice, critique, observations to help me improve. If you can suggest a way to improve any drawing - lay it on me...I can take it! In fact, I welcome it.
I'm so excited to be participating again and can't wait to see everyone's contributions again!
