My Passion for Drawing

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home. ~Twyla Tharp

Each summer, I spend a great deal of time drawing.  I rarely have time to just chill out and draw during the school year.  The pressures and workload of teaching are just too much.  This summer I really stepped things up.  First, I started a 30 Day Art/Drawing Challenge on Facebook.  I wanted to challenge myself to draw as well as address the artists block that I was having.  

Day 1 - Self-Portrait

This seems to have opened the floodgates.

I've dusted off my DeviantArt page and started posting my new drawing there.  I feel like I have found a home there.  I'm really enjoying viewing the art of others and getting feedback from fellow artists.  The talent out there is phenomenal.

I've been averaging 2-3 drawing per day for the last week.  
I'm going to be sad when school starts up again and I won't have time like I do now.

I know I need more practice, but I am very proud of the drawings I've created.
Here is a sample......

I do best when I'm drawing the things I love.....

Bella and Edward Cullen

Claire and Jamie Fraser

Fifty Shades of Grey
Christian Grey

My Kids.....

As the new school year looms in my near future, I am making it a goal to spend some time working on drawing as a way to relax and decompress.
