As we’re rounding the last week of the fall semester, I’d like to share some goals I’m setting out for myself to accomplish over the break. There are few things that I am planning on doing over the holidays in regards to keeping myself working and avoiding getting rusty.
My first mission is to get a new sketchbook, for the course of the break, and knockout as much drawing over break as possible. I plan on purchasing a smaller book that I carry around to gather some good observational studies around my home town.
My second self assigned task is to workout a larger painting over break. Throughout this semester I have been getting the same response from my more abstracted pieces that my work would look better bigger so with the free time I hope to have over break I want to get a substantial painting started.
And of course my third plan is to continue experimenting with sculpture in anyway possible whether it be more toys or something more complicated… I have been interested in making a puppet of some sort for a while.
Whether I get all of this done or not setting up a game-plan before break is going to help me manage my time and take advantage of it, and I’d suggest doing the same.
