So yesterday I decided that I was spending far to much of my time on Facebook, arguing with people or just simply wasting entire evenings looking at posts, refreshing the page, and seeing what "exciting" new posts might come through. While I thought about this yesterday, it occurred to me that I had not saved myself time by quitting playing video games, I had only traded it for something even less productive than grinding out levels and dungeons for immaterial items for a feeling of accomplishment. This got me to a point where I said to hell with it and deleted my Facebook, my Google +, my Tumblr, and looking at all of the ignorant forums I belong to. I want to learn art properly and yet here I was spinning my wheels and wasting valuable time that I could be spending reading about something tangible.

So, I think my plan for the next year will be to do things like Bargue Drawings, master studies, and forcing myself to learn the human form properly. That is not to say I will not be doing other things as well, but I feel like I really need to master these, coupled with perspective, light and color, and the basic foundational elements of art. I may even take a class on oil painting.

Anyway, I am feeling the withdrawal of those evil social networks, but if I remain strong it can only be for my own artistic and spiritual growth.

I have been well, getting old and trying to finish school, that is about it. I am working on my pilot's license and drawing/painting when I can. I am glad to hear things are going well for you.
