getting back to work's been quite the month being a mom/soccer mom. altho i can't blame my lack of new drawings entirely on the beginning of school, soccer season, related events, and homework. i have chosen to spend time hanging with friends, a lot of time actually, instead of creating. but that's okay...having had a break has actually been refreshing. i feel much more excited about my art and getting out and promoting it.

as i'm finally back on track...getting our routines and habits in place, i'm now getting some things actually accomplished. except for a few small touches here and there, Sophie (above) is basically finished, and Silvia (below) is progressing nicely. worked on tightening up details on the lower half last night.

and co-incidentally yesterdays lesson in my blast off e-course with Alyson Stanfield was about establishing perfect timing universe!!

and altho i have just started reading Twyla Tharp's book, The Creative Habit, she also talks about embracing routine. "creativity is a habit, and the best creativity is a result of good work habits."

i know the word habit gets bad press in the art world, but to me it feels really good and reassuring to be practicing new daily routines and getting some drawings completed!
