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

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.
