Okay. This really is crunch time.
I mean, the final stretch. The last leg of the Race. I have until the 30th of May to submit up to 6 art pieces for Fe Art Gallery's Art Nouveau contest. I have been scrounging up time in between my internship, my classes at American River College, & my other full time job as a before & after school teacher at a private school. This far in my little self-proclaimed art challenge, I have finished one piece, & am around 80% done with a second piece. I really want to see if I can complete a third artwork in this extremely small window of time.
Everything that consumes the hours in my days is extremely exhausting & I will start by saying that I am not by any means complaining. I LOVE what I do, & if I thought I couldn't handle it, I wouldn't have signed myself up for the undertaking of a two jobs, school, & a side hustle. Although, that being said, I must say that I am also a human, and as such I must state the fact that humans do, indeed, get tired & sometimes only want to come home to their couch & veg out whilst eating ice cream. Before May rolled around, I would allow myself most of the days out of my work week to do exactly that once I got home at the end of the day. Now that I am rounding out my month, however, I am going to try & see if I can push myself even further. That means less ice cream eating & more art grinding!
This post is essentially my effort to put this goal out into the universe so that I can motivate myself to GET. IT. DONE.
Let's see how I hold up.
I'll be working away on art pieces- until we get there!
