Three Things Thursday!

Number Three

1. In case you haven’t heard — We are moving to the southwest Los Angeles area soon. My husband got a job in El Segundo. He started yesterday and he really likes it so far. He started yesterday. It’s a 120 mile commute from here to there, so we’ll be moving as soon as we can find a place to live.

2. A fellow student in Kelly Rae Roberts’ Flying Lessons class is working on an interesting project: 21 Days of Gratitude. Because we are moving soon, I didn’t want to commit to it, but it’s probably not to late for you to! Actually, once we get in our new home and I get my studio set up, I’m going to do a similar 21 Days Project, but I’m going to work with one art technique for 21 days, learning it backward and forward. As you may have heard me talk about before, I don’t feel as though I’ve found my voice, my style, yet. I think working with one technique until I know it inside and out will help me find those methods that I enjoy the most and that will help me convey my vision the best. As it is, I’m a “Jill of all trades” — and a master of none, as the old saying goes. I love trying new things; I’m a bit of a technique junkie.

3. I haven’t read either of Kelly Corrigan’s books (Lift and The Middle Place), but if these two videos are any indication of what she has to say, I want to read them both. And soon!

    Thank you so much for liking my idea! After the 21 Days of Gratitude I’ll be exploring another art technique that interests me. It’s been fun immersing myself in this project. Blogging about it daily really puts the pressure on to make sure I do it every day. I’m sure you’ll find the same thing when you choose your project!
