It is January 1st, 2009. Wow! That’s almost hard to even think about. There are so many things to think back on but I am choosing instead to think ahead and to contemplate what lies ahead for me. I am continuing my education at Oklahoma State University working towards a degree in fine art. What started out as just wanting to take some art classes has grown in the desire to finish athese classes and get this degree. Why? I don’t know. I don’t Need it. It’s not like I’m working toward career goals. I had my career in nursing and stopped doing that to devote my time to Jillian. Now that she’s a grown woman I can look to my goals once again. My initial goal – to become a better artist – hasn’t changed. Since I’m not having to work for finiancial reasons it’s nice to be able to take these classes and work towards a goal. I’ve had goals before – like finish this project so I can start another project. But this one is different. For one thing I’m having to work towards other peoples (instructors) expectations and not just mine. But I suppose if I want to actually sell any of my art then I should think about what “they” would like. “They” being the buyers. Usually I just create what I feel like and if it pleases me then I’m happy. One of my problems right now is that I have lots of ideas for projects that I want to do but am postponing starting them until after I’m through with school because of the time they would take. I think though that if they are really that important to me they will get done. Eventually.
