Focus on Today

Everyday that you paint...or draw...or interact with any aspect of life, it takes time and effort.  For all of us.  So all one can do is focus on today.  If you are focusing on your art, then focus on what aspect you are trying to learn at the moment.  Is it color? Or brushstrokes? Or composition? Some other aspect?

As long as your mantra is practice, practice, practice; and you realize that all we ever do, and are doing, is practice, then I do believe you are headed in the right direction!

My focus on this painting was bringing up the saturation of color in the foreground and simplifying the background.  I am happy with the results.
