Most doubt is self inflicted as you probably already know. Part of it is the lack of sales, competitions, and again, the busy part of art. But, do sales, prizes and frenzy make me an artist? I should be savoring this slow time and be studying and practicing. There, I found the problem. Procrastination and no self motivation.
I know if I get busy on something, anything, ... sketching? Then all will be right again. So why am I sitting here? Off to find the little light to get me going. I will start by working on updating my web page.
Ah, I feel better already. I never wonder when I am painting, interesting, huh?
Also a sketch for Scavenger Hunt 98 that I didn't get posted until today. Sigh.
Number 7, something that grows or hangs on a tree. I started this in Silver City and finished it in El Paso. I took the pine cone with me and left it in the hotel room. Wonder what they thought?
And a roadrunner along the way on Highway 10 near Las Cruces, New Mexico. Here is a link to the Desert Exposure story about the giant bird made by artist, Olin Calk. The bird is about 20 feet tall and 40 or more feet long and made of recycled stuff, trash.
Another view along Highway 10 today. The desert is so green and lush at the moment. Hard to believe there are so many flowers and beautiful sights. The yucca blooms are gone, they were beautiful back in July when we got here.
