Life is a whole lot about practicing. We have to practice to get good at anything. Since I am seeking improvement in my artistic output, my goal this year has been to work on my art every day. I’m doing pretty well at sticking to this now that my summer traveling is done. This morning I made a little ink sketch of the view from my window and am heading into the sewing room to continue with a project for someone else…doing my daily hour stint on it. I’ll follow up with some work on the portrait of my daughter. Good habits and improved skills are created by repeating careful small actions many times.
