After rereading a few of my end of year retrospectives, I realized that from November to February is a dry zone for my art. There are probably a few reasons for that. First, winter hits me hard, the cold, the short days, and don’t get me started on fucking holidays. Second, well, I think that first one is the big reason. So, to combat that, I’ve started a few challenges. One on Facebook, SP’s Weekly Photo Challenge. The other is on Fine Art America, The Weekly Photography Challenge. I have found that sharing the challenges with others, helps keep me motivated. So, if you find yourself in a rut, take a deep breath, and challenge yourself.
The challenge was Stripes. So, I found a striped shirt of my husbands, and started taking pics.
Then, I put the shirt on and took photos of my hands.
After that, I realized that I had a striped dress on, so I took this pic.
The hand pics led to a Hands Challenge.
Which then led to a pocket watch challenge.
Next challenge? Books!
One thing leads to another and I’ve been working for 3 weeks straight. So, Challenge Yourself!
