Today is my birthday, and because I got married on my birthday today I am 67 years old, and I am celebrating my 45th anniversary. I have really had a lovely day just relaxing with Derek, eating out, playing with the Grandchildren.
Today is also the day I stop fooling about and begin to be the artistic person I have wanted to be for years. So -- promise time!
I promise myself that I will stop buying every new medium that crosses my path. I will begin to use the piles of art materials and ideas I have been hoarding for the past ages. Sink or swim I am going to test myself to see if I am just talk or I really want to be an artist! It's time I think :)
The first thing I have done to set off on my new path is purchase a new sketch book - now I think about it that's just like me - I should have made one! Oh well, next time.
