#sonotladylikegoals2016 - One Little Word

It's been awhile since I did something art-y to celebrate my One Little Word. Too bad I'm not really keen on the one I made.

In fact...I hate it and think it's super ugly!

But I'm going to take some inspiration from my word of the year, and leave it for awhile and then revisit it in a month or something.


I have encountered a major artist block it seems. But it's best to just try and work through it, and create more. Even if the outcome is not ideal.

Although, she kind of looks like a nebula or cloud of outer space gases or something, which I am quite enjoying! But really, the more I look at her (in person), the more I am just not loving her. But I have an idea in mind for the re-working.

My One Little Word lesson with this piece of art is such: I need to learn to take the time to plan, or sketch out my art, or at the very least not rush through the process to get to “The End”. I’ve always been okay with embracing the “ugly stage” of my art, but this is teaching me that sometimes I can’t recognize the ugly stage until I stare at it for a while. And that there’s no shame in needing time to figure this out. I am a lifelong learner, and I’m just happy and grateful that I have art in my life.
