31 days left of 2011 and I'm thinking about 2012. I have paintings at home that need to be finished and I'm thinking about what kind of project I want to take on in 2012. Because, honestly, I know there won't be much painting in the next month. But, I want to do something different for this blog next year.
I'm craving a new blog project that will challenge me creatively but not overwhelm me.
I want a new project that let's me post what's inspiring me, touching my heart, using different mediums but not too chaotic or unfocused.
I want there to be structure but not too much structure.
I want to be able to create some posts in advance but keep it fresh as well.
I'm over analyzing and complicating the plan.
I'm thinking about subjects like: hearts, guitars, trees, flowers, fish, portraits, and words.
I'm thinking about words like: jubilee, caramel, love, happy and roulette.
I'm thinking about mediums like: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and writing.
I'm thinking about schedules like: hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly.
What if I pick a monthly word and a quarterly subject or a monthly subject and a quarterly word? Maybe I'll post by the hour on some weeks and weekly some months. Do you see my quandary? What's the plan? Do I just draw it or do I sculpt it, write about it, and sew it, too?
You know all of that will not happen because holding myself accountable will be excruciating.
It all comes down to discipline. And, what I want out of my days. Do I want to work out everyday at lunch? Can I discipline myself to paint everyday? (I know the answer to that one is no.) I'm lacking passion but I'm feeling passionate about wanting a new project.
