and tell her Barb the Craft Junkie sent ya!
I've been drawing and drawing and when I'm tired of drawing, I draw some more. LOL
Or so I thought.
I think, as we grow older we get these ideas in our heads, whether we put them there ourselves or we're told them by others, and we begin to believe them. "I can't draw" or "I can't paint"...or some other such nonsense. We believe these things because they're so set in our brains AND because we're afraid to let go and play. Some of us are even afraid of trying because we might fail.
All those describe me. Fear of failure, bad thoughts ingrained in my brain, and on and on.
I keep trying. Over and over again, I keep trying.
This girl is my first full length girl. The assignment for the end of the week was to draw a full length girl after you had practiced the eyes and mouths and heads for a while....and this is the girl that I drew.
Me, the woman who can't draw, drew her. She is mine. A product of my hands and head and heart. Just a piece of paper (in my journal, of course), a mechanical pencil, an eraser, my hands and my imagination...that's all it took to create her.
To say I'm proud is an understatement.
Now, is she the most gorgeous girl you've ever seen? No, probably not....but she's mine and I'm so very proud of her.
I CAN draw....I really can. And before you know it I will be painting and watercoloring, too. Oh my at the things I can do...I just didn't know I could do them.
Until next time...Happy Creating!!!
Peace & Love,
