Jack Russell

So I have been a bit quiet of late. I do find it hard to be inspired when I look at databases all day. Must put new job at the top of my to do list 🙂

So the original plan was to do a sketch a week and post, hmmm, best laid plans and all that! But will still try to keep it art/design/craft/DIY oriented and hopefully I dont wander in my verbage to the gripe and moan genre. Well, I will keep to a min if I do LOL!

When looking for inspiration I was asked if i could sketch a friends dog. I got out the sketchpad and the graphite to start work and decided that I might give the pastels a shot. Its been years since I did anything with pastel.

So this old guy’s name is Jackson, a Jack Russell, it didnt come out to bad? I scored some old mats at a yard sale so at least he looks more refined.

I love, love to create, its hard to explain, but, I feeel like without it I am missing a big part of who I am. This is what I want to do. I want to paint and draw and sell my art, but I also fear sometimes that it wont sell, art is a tough field. My self esteem has been takening a bashing for a while now (long story bad boss) so I am pusshing myself to create and post.

So here is jackson.
