Back to Creating Art and Blogging!

I am getting back into the groove of creating art and other creative things... I will share with you on future posts:)  As you know I can be a serious procrastinator, so I have been searching for the cure- which I don't think there is one ... but there is help! This free app uses the Pomodoro technique :
The pomodoro technique is a time management methodology created by Francesco Cirillo. Pomodoro enables you to take the stress out of deadlines by breaking down your day into segments, you work solidly during these periods and remove all distractions. At the end of the pomodoro session you reward yourself with a break.

 I will let you know if it helps me!
 Now I have a new art project started (to fill up the space above my bed in the master bedroom) and I have been showing  some of the stages on my FaceBook page  https://www.facebook.com/TerriWestArt
 I do intend to make a free PDF file of the project so that if you are interested -- you can get more info!
Here is where the project is right now:

 I already have the next painting that I want to do and it may turn into a series!- I am so excited!
I have to give credit to Sunu Philip of Clothed in Scarlet for helping me get motivated and getting me going on some changes that will be made in my business, blog, Facebook page and new products that I am developing. I had made the decision that the time was right this past New Years Day- God cleared a few things from my busy calendar and was calling me to come back. Out popped Sunu and her business and a cool art journal class http://shop.kristalnorton.com/e-courses/art-journaling-roots/ by Kristal Norton to get me going. Then I got into a group called Artist'sKiss run by Robin Pedrero and now I am busy! Busy!

“We artists are indestructible; even in a prison, or in a concentration camp, I would be almighty in my own world of art, even if I had to paint my pictures with my wet tongue on the dusty floor of my cell.” 
― Pablo Picasso
