Well, it’s the end of December 2017. We are 8-1/2 years into publishing BugPudding. It is still a joy to do this and hopefully there is plenty more to come. For all of you who actively read and follow our comic, Sara and I thank you for all your support and encouragement.
Some of you may know that I have been splitting some of my artistic time trying to learn to paint using watercolors. For me , it has not been easy. This is actually, according to my recollection, my third major attempt. Needless to say, the first two attempts were disappointing at best. But like most things in life, persistence is the key to success. So I’m headed down the road on try number three.
A life lesson, which I have learned, is that it always helps to put some formal structure into any process. To date, I have been working very informally and that shows in my progress. Actually, I should cut myself a break and state that I have been learning a great deal but that I am not happy with my application of that knowledge. I decided to start 2018 off on a positive note and start a new blog (actually repurpose an old blog) to chronicle my journey. I am providing a link here below. You are invited and welcomed to visit this new website as often as you wish. I call it Water + Pigment + Practice. It’s purpose is to force me to be more structured in my learning and working to become competent with watercolor painting. In the process, I will be collecting and documenting what I am learning and what I am doing. You may find it interesting and informative. Water + Pigment + Practice
