Hello World

My name is Shamus Collins. My wife came across a blog entitled "Creative Journey" by an artist named Myrna Wacknov. There is a link on that blog to another blog Myrna has created entitled "Drawn to the Mirror" and this is my point of interest. Myrna has set forth to create 365 days of self portraits that began on Jan. 1st. Well I am starting a little after the first of the year but I am going to make the same goal for myself. This sounds like a fun and inspirational way to force creativity. Let the fun begin.

160/365 Color Me

This is the start of a new sketch book so I am going to try a new medium. This entire book will be me practicing with water colors. I have not used water colors since grade school. I don't know any techniques or even how to mix the colors properly, but that won't stop me from trying. At least for one phase of this project.
