2015 End of Year Entry

Ending 2015 the way I hope to start 2016 — painting!

Looking back on the year and what little I see in-progress and (even less) finished, I should feel a bit of disappointment in myself.

It’s not just a matter of the usual “oh wow, I surprised myself and did more than I thought” like past years. I really did have long gaps and did a lot less than planned.

Let’s look at what I did work on though…

Finished art:

Started/in-progress art & studies:

Fun news:

My almost-got-an-awesome-thing news (that was a large part of why I was so distracted this year).

Miscellaneous stuff:

Lost my old laptop and bought a new desktop, played way too much LOTRO.

Sewing and costuming?

Unless you count mending clothes here and there (which I don’t), then nope. Didn’t do anything with this hobby despite coming close/planning to do something. I hope to change that next year.

Admittedly, I had other things on my mind that distracted me too much to focus this year. I should have continued working on things (it may have even helped pass the time), but I can’t blame myself for putting art and goals off. In fact, I think I will choose to say that NOT working on things allowed me to think about projects and push myself to jump into more involved pieces. Like the acrylic painting. As of writing this blog entry, my first acrylic painting in a very long time is far along in-progress, and I hope to finish it in January if I’m able to continue without interruptions (or my usual “let’s go back and rework that section” business).

Hopes for 2016:

Finish more in-progress art, do more paintings. Get back in shape (enough back-and-forth! ARGH!) and add sewing back into the plan.

So… that’s my look-back entry for 2015. I have a painting to get back to…. 😉

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.
