Well, another semester has come to a close. I had my final portfolio review today and I’m pleased with the feedback I received.
This is the last drawing I did for the class:
It’s an adequate drawing. There was another drawing he would like to see, if possible, when I pick up the drawings that are on display next week. But, realistically, it may not be possible. This is the result of going back to school and still trying to run my business and manage my husband’s:
I can’t even see the desktop, the bin to the left is all paperwork that must either be recorded or filed!!! Yikes! I think I know what I’ll be doing for the next couple weeks, digging myself out from under all that paperwork!
So, my end of class review for myself. I’m pleased with the progress I have made. I’ve gone from telling myself I can’t draw, to telling myself I can draw, AND accepting the limitations I currently have on my skills, yet knowing that to improve my skills, all I need to do is devote the time and energy to it.
My final take, if there is anything you are currently telling yourself you can’t do, but you have the desire to do, invest in yourself to learn. I picked up a charm this weekend when I was out shopping, a pretty silver spiral with engraving on it. The engraving states:
“Whether you think you CAN or CAN’T, you’re RIGHT” (capitalization mine).
