At the beginning of year, I made the following resolutions:
- Finish the OCA Textiles 1 course
- Start (and do most of) the OCA Printmaking 1 course
- Tidy and organise my studio into a pleasant working space
- Blog more
- Draw more!
Yay! I achieved almost all of these - Textiles 1 is finished (I got a 2:2), I'm well over halfway on Printmaking 1, and I have made 75 blog posts this year. Woot!
I did not get a bike, and am still as fat as butter. Also - my fucking studio is a fucking disaster area. Sorry for the swears but I am so cross. It's in our tiny back yard - it IS most of the back yard - and was built by the guy we bought our house from. It's got a plastic roof which leaked - we got someone in to fix the leaks from the roof, but there are still drips coming in everywhere. It is so damp in there - I went in to do some tidying yesterday and everything was covered in a fine layer of mildew. I just sat and cried. So until I have proper money to sort it out and get a new roof, I don't have a studio. But, I have tidied all my crafty/ art supplies into boxes under my bed.
I did draw more in 2012, but it's there that I'm making my biggest resolutions for 2013. I want to do a sketch a day. Wildly ambitious? Yes. Likely to be going awry by the second week in January? Hell yes. But I'm going to aim for a sketch a day. It's the only way to improve my drawing, and I need to stretch myself more with visual ideas. So, my resolutions for 2013 are:
- Finish the OCA Printmaking 1 course
- Start (and do most of) the OCA Textiles 1: Exploring Ideas course
- Keep blogging
- Keep my craft/ art supplies tidy
- Draw a sketch a day!
