Second start to the new year and the Buck stops here

Well, because of all the things that have been going on since January 1, good and bad, I have decided that my New Year starts today. I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions because I try to live each day the best I can, but I am going to resolve to spend more PRODUCTIVE time in the studio this year and somewhat keep a log on what I do every day. I think that perhaps this will help me not to fritter the day away so much, especially on the computer which is one of the greatest time sucks ever. When I worked many, many years ago in a medical research lab, I listed tasks for the day and with great pleasure crossed them off as they were finished. Must be the Virgo in me. Perhaps I should try that again.

Since I don’t have much on the recent art front (although I plan to do some animal art with the nib pen later today maybe with a color overlay), I thought you might like to see pictures of the elusive big antlered buck. I looked out yesterday and saw a deer about 200 feet away near the lake. When I got out the binoculars to get a better look, I saw it was a buck, so I got the camera out and took his picture. Then I saw another one – this time the big buck – all in the daylight. I hope the pictures are clear enough to see. At first I didn’t notice that I had a picture of the two together so you can compare. I still couldn’t count the tines, but you can see the rack is huge.
