Track Your Progress

I have been sorting through all the pictures of my artwork that I have taken since 2010 when I stared my Etsy shop.  If you don't regularly take pictures of your artwork, I highly recommend it if for no other reason than to track your progress.  Now, camera phones make it easy to take a quick shot, but back in 2010, it was a "point and click" that had to do the work.  This was one of the VERY FIRST collages I ever made: 

It was 4" X 4" and I remember how proud I was of it.  I had forgotten about it, but when I saw it again I decided that the concept was still relevant to today (who doesn't love a bird silhouette) and I decided to give it another go.  Here is what I came up with:

These past four years have made quite an impression on my work.  I can't wait to see where I will be in another four years. 

Take pictures of everything.  You never know what might inspire you today or later down the road.
