Many times as artist we get to the place where we feel stuck and it is at that place of being stuck you start to question whether or not you should even be doing this thing called art as a career or a hobby.
Its doing these lean times of temporary despair that we have to step back and reevaluate what we are doing. Being an artist is not an easy path because it is a creative journey you are on instead of a career path.
Yes you want to make money at this but the real reason you are doing it is for the creative energy it gives you. Your doing it for the love of being able to be creative and also make a profit from it.
There are a lot of artist of all kinds, the arena is full of creative souls trying to find where they fit into this arena of creative oceans. You paint, draw, take photography, create computer art, performance art, and yet you still wonder where you fit into this ocean of art.
The only thing I can tell you is to keep creating and you will find your place. Remember your art is the journey of your soul as it keeps expanding to greater heights alone the way.

We are now six days into the new year 2016, how are you playing it out. Are you playing out big or are you still playing small and hoping for a better year.
As we can see time waits for no one, it keeps moving forward so we have to position ourselves for the greatness that is waiting to emerge from us for the world. How will you play 2016 out……….
This is the first painting for 2016 which will be displayed in the first exhibit for 2016 to kick start the year, Oil on Canvas, Untitled.

Tonight we went to the Winter Fest Tree Lighting Festival. This is the reality that Christmas is just around the corner and 2015 is almost out the door. Where did the year go.
We stayed long enough for the tree lighting and then left because it was cold. They even brought snow in for those who wanted to snow board.
Santa and Mrs Claus were there walking around greeting everyone, they had a group there called Heart and Soul line dancing who performed, there was a choir there singing Christmas Carols, and plenty of food.
All in all it was a good community event.

One of the best times to take your sketchbook with you is when you know you will be waiting for a period of time. Here are some of my idle time drawings where I did some “Cross Hatching Drawings” with pens. It really helps the time go by quickly. These are with the Micron 02 and 05 pens.

My new project is the Artist Trading Cards. Each one of these small pieces is 2.5 X 3.5 . I bought the Canvas Paper for oils but they also have the ones for Pastels, Charcoal, and Water Color. You get about 10 cards per pack and since they are already treated you can just paint, glue, stamp or whatever you want. I have seen some very creative cards online.
I love to paint small as you know by my Small Art Series Paintings which start at 8 X 10 but I must admit painting on this small-scale 2.5 X 3.5 is really a challenge. It will be interesting to see where this leads me.
Let me know your thoughts about these trading cards and take a visit to my gallery for other pieces http://chinue.imagekind.com/Smallartseries
