I’m a huge fan of art challenges. Anything that encourages artists to push their limits has always appealed to me. I've only dedicated myself to one challenge (Mermay), but I’m aiming to do more in my journey of self-improvement this year.
This year, I want to be more honest with myself. I’ve always tried to work towards becoming a better artist, but last year I stagnated a bit. I stopped believing in myself and my art and struggled a lot with where I wanted to be as an artist. After many pep talks and some self reflection, I’m finally deciding to try harder.
This year, I’ve decided to try something new. I’ve toyed with the idea of starting a blog after reading about it in a blog about how to grow an art business. It appealed to me, but at the time I wasn’t in a good place to start. The idea of having somewhere I can write my thoughts is therapeutic. I could have a journal I write in, but I want to share these thoughts too. I could use standard social media, but sharing tidbits about our lives has never appealed to me. So blogging it is!
