Challenge Gillian - September

Yes, once again, I failed to get four pieces painted in one month. If one thing has become clear it's that it isn't that easy to stick to a challenge like this. For along time I have had difficulty sitting down, getting on and drawing or painting. I really have to be bashed round the head with inspiration before I sit down. Or, alternatively, I'm get paid for what I am producing. That's always a good motivator ;o) However, I did manage to get this guy finished in September and several other pieces started. The other pieces will be finished up this month (hopefully), one is actually listed in my Etsy store (Hide and Seek), but considering I have signed up for another ancient history course with the Open University I feel that my time is going to be spent studying more that drawing. Still, it's nearly the end of the year. Can you believe it? Just three more months of Challenge Gillian left.

Oh My Gawd, this is sooo cute, I almost want another puppy. Almost, I said. Your drawings are absolutely wonderful. Personal challenges are a good thing, but the reality is, sometimes we're our own worst motivator. lol.

I love your drawings, Gillian. They're so realistic and detailed that maybe trying to do a certain number of them within a fixed period of time is not a realistic expectation. On the other hand, the year is almost over!

Thanks guys. I had to laugh at you 'almost' wanting another puppy, Lori. Everybody needs a puppy - LOL. I agree that sometimes we are out own worst motivator. But like you say, Marilyn, the year is nearly over and I can't help but be a little glad about that :o)
