“We don't see things as they are; we see them as we are.” ~ Anais Nin
So, yeah... up until the last couple of months, it had been quite awhile since I'd drawn much... or painted, sculpted, etc.; all of which I love(d) to do, and once-upon-a-time in a previous life, did quite a bit of. However, lately I have been inspired on quite a few levels by my talented children, personal circumstances, and an insatiable desire to get back to it (yes, I dream of painting), with the final catalyst having been this great art class/workshop I'm now going through with my kiddos. Somehow, having the step-by-step structure of it has helped me to put all inhibitions aside and just. begin. again.
Where better to start than with contour drawings... Lines, my favorite!
After a long hiatus of many years away... it feels good to be creating this way again.
