The year is almost over and I think we can all say that bad things have happened this year. But I would also like to look back on my personal accomplishments as an artist this year. I have created more art this year than I have in my entire life! I have also tried more mediums in the past twelve months. I have painted with water color, acrylic paint, and oil paint. I have also improved my chalk pastel skills, as well as tried oil pastels. I have always loved the simplicity of continuous line art but have never tried my hand at it until now. I can officially add this to my list of trial and error for 2016.
I hope you can look back at the year and be proud of your own accomplishments, whether great or small. Life is art, and there are no goals in art, other than the ones you set for yourself. Live your life, create it into something beautiful, and show it to the world!
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” — Neil Gaiman
