I am suffering from “drawing withdrawal”! I have been extremely busy for the last couple of weeks and have not taken the time to do one of my favorite things – DRAW.
Finally, a few nights ago I sat down to watch the Olympics on TV. While I was watching I pulled out my old friends, my sketch pad and my pencils. I didn’t care what I drew or how good or bad it turned out, I just needed to draw. It felt great! I ended up doing several pages of just simple sketches. Again,I wasn’t worried about how detailed or how “correct they were”! I realized that it is very important to me to have some of those times when I throw all critique to the wind and just sketch.
The next day when I looked at my sketches it brought a little smile to my day. No, they weren’t the best I’ve ever done. In fact, I will not be showing off the lighthouse I did with my colored pencils, but it was very relaxing to do. I’m putting it here just because I feel strongly that we should all be willing to do drawings that aren’t always our best.Our talents and our hobbies should not become “work”. They should be enjoyed. I can’t enjoy my hobbies if I feel pressure to do them. I hope my website encourages you in that too.
So, here’s my not so good colored pencil drawing.

This one is of a leaf that was hanging in an arrangement on the wall.
Some crazy doodle.
It was fun to draw again. Believe me, I intend to settle back in to my drawing and also posting on this website. Come back again and see more. Also, send me some pictures of your artwork so that I can post them on my Drawing Gallery page. I’d love to share your artwork!
