Just do it


"The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who'll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work." -- Chuck Close

It's time to sit down and get to work. Every day, even if it's just a doodle. Which is basically what this is. Also an experiment to see how Bristol paper takes watercolor, because I want to do pen and ink and watercolor, and watercolor paper will eat my markers. 

The answer is, not terrible, but I'm not thrilled with it.  But I painted, and that's what matters. Go me!

TtThis is my friend Chuck's cat The Cheat, whom I am pet sitting. 

Art Art every day for the rest of 2016!
