I've always had sketchbooks where I doodled and wrote;
especially in my teens and years after.
But recently I havent been able to keep one.
Feels like if I am spending time doodling in a book I should be working on actual projects and pieces for shows.
I've also found other outlets for exploring and sharing via blogs and instagram.
I just havent given myself the time to sit down alone in silence and jot down quick sketches and random ideas.
I miss that.
Am just noticing I seem to be repeating comfortable routines during the days;
and am slowly molding into it with age.
We all need a little slap in the butt sometimes.
Just a reminder to change things up a bit.
Step out of the norm. Be spontaneous. Try something new and challenging.
Am mostly thinking about this now,
because I have a series of painting I need to start tackling for a show in September.
The last time I was working for a big show was a few months ago,
and in the meantime I've been finishing up some small side projects that were honestly pretty refreshing.
Now... I must face another big one;
and trying to figure out how to begin...
