I’m six days into a new journey. I am sooo happy to have given myself this gift of commitment. Already I see the wisdom of this discipline. The first night, I was all gung-ho about it, spending over an hour on the little vase sketch in my last post. The second night I sat in a favorite local spot, had a bowl of soup and sat quietly in the corner and sketched.
So far, so good. By the third night, resistance and procrastination had already set in! On the third day! But a commitment is a commitment, so I stayed downstairs and worked on a sketch that I needed to get done for a client.
As soon as I started I was hooked! I love working late at night alone and although I know this, I sometimes forget and let myself be lazy.
I am rediscovering my love of drawing. I’m rusty at it, but it feels so completely wonderful to dip back in!
It is also giving me an opportunity to do some writing with my sketching which is something I really haven’t done much of and have long admired of other artists. So I’ll see where that takes me too.
I am so happy, overjoyed really to be doing this. Please join in on the joy!!
