A New Feather
Thus, my newly acquired muscles atrophied and my skills were lost. Well, went underground. Until now.
Last year, I reclaimed what was lost, and have slowly been making progress. I still love a piece of rough hewn, cold press, crisp white piece of Arches watercolor paper with a gorgeous deckled edge, but I don't mind a mouse and a computer screen as much as I once did.
There's nothing that breeds production like necessity, and I, as head artistic coordinator in our Women's Ministries at church, was recently called on to create a new logo for our Spiritual Day Spa (a great event where, among other things, I get to lead an Art Therapy class...another hidden talent).
I took a cue (and I'd love to take a class) from this amazing instructor, and I don't mind the result. I'll be proud to have this logo be atop any letterhead or brochure, but I still have so much more to learn.
What skill would you like to learn? Is there something you don't do well, and would like to do more? Why not start?! It's still only January...you still have all of 2011 ahead of you! Start something creative today, I dare you!
