My First and True Love

When I was a bit younger, ha ha….  okay quite a bit younger I used to draw all the time.  Since getting married and having children I haven’t found, or made the time for it.  It makes me a little sad to think that I don’t keep up with it, and every once in a while I will get an urge to pull out the drawing paper and pencils.  Well I got that urge last night, I was really worried when I first started that I wouldn’t remember how, after all it would serve me right.  But after a few minutes I remembered why I enjoy it so much.  It is such a relaxing release.  I’m not a very patient person though, so after about two minutes of rough sketching in where everything would go I started in on the fun part the real detail and shading….  I learn every time after I finish that I need to slow that part down and be more patient.  (So please don’t look to close.)  I also need to get my easel out I’ve learned over and over that the perspective is very skewed when you are drawing on a table, you tend to stretch things vertically more.  Lessons learned, slow down the first step, get everything right before you get to the fun, and next, DRAW ON an easel. :)


Do you know who it is?


What is something you wish you would do for yourself more?

Seriously I know I already told you but you are RAD!! I sent that text to Dave and he knew who it was just with the eyes done! I hope that you can find time to draw more often I always LOVE to see what you draw.

Kristi - I had no idea you are an artist. That's SO awesome, and yes, you should do more of it!

Something I wish I did more of for me was to play the piano just to play. Not for choir practice, or playing for someone else, but for me. :)
