At the top of the year I told myself that I would create at least one collection each quarter. The motive was for me to have a deadline. In the beginning of the year I focused on primary colors, the “Primary" collection. I made paintings on cardstock paper, large canvas and miniature canvas. This concept took up time but having the deadline and plan was what I needed to stay organized. My second quarter focuses on neutrals, pastels, suedes, and smooth undertones. I’ve led into the second collection of the year by using grey and white pastels. This is how I stay focused, with a plan.
