I sold a drawing the other day (this is the one). And completed a commissioned piece. I also finished a painting that was long on the list of not-quite-finisheds. And prepped a board I plan to use for a big collage. Maybe I'll start that today. Yes, I've had a thirty-mile bike ride this morning, and now that it's raining out, it's the perfect thing.

Next, I'd like to report that I sent out several proposals for shows, but I haven't. (Well, I sent out one - it was in a drawer for six months, not quite finished.) I'm not sure what holds me back on that one, I think it has to do with familiarizing myself with the ropes. If I've learned anything from David Allen, it's this: identifying the next action step is often the hardest part of any project. Here's an action I can take: I'll call an artist friend to ask if she could please just point me in the right direction. Give me a hint. An assignment. A suggestion. Just one baby step.

One step at a time, right? Right.
