From the Art Desk 1
I used to draw a lot. I went through periods where i would get an idea for a drawing and draw it. sometimes putting it aside if it didn't meet my expectations. these days I haven't been drawing as much. I have't been motivated enough. I mean I have a huge project for the church sitting on my table that is getting no where. which i think might be part of the problem.
It is too big a project, I can't just sit down and draw, it is elaborate and then there is the small problem that I think I lost the Icon I was supposed to paint it on. really this area of my talents has been disappointing me a lot.
it has been very discouraging. the last time I worked at my art desk I thought everything was going great but then by the end of it i had erased all that I had done. Dejected I turned off the light and came out to watch what ever football game happened to be on. and I haven't been back in the art room sense.
It think there are two problems I am dealing with, no maybe three:
3. well this is embarrassing. I was going to sight a video that my cousin Draci posted on her blog but i can't find it. basically the gist of this problem is that I have good taste, I know what I want my work to look like but I am not at that level of ability. the video she posted talks about this and I thought it put the issue in a much better way then I can. any way i am at a point where I can keep working on it or you know just give up.
