I want to be hopelessly optimistic again.

I want to get back to the state of starry-eyed optimism, where I am able to risk anything and everything.

I want to have fun this year. Not just banal, daily fun, but some really seriously good times.

Almost there… just got to paint a bull first.

first bull sketch. he looks like a shaggy dog, or something out of an old tale:

This poor sucker has been in the works for EVER. This pic is from months ago.

Then it mutated to this. pretty awful:

Which was when I realized just how much I hate gouache.

Now it looks like this:

In other words, I am starting over.

I don’t know why I am so fixated on painting a bull. I somehow decided that until it’s done, nothing will be right… I’ve been at it for almost a year. It has to be done before I leave the continent.
