Graphite on Duralar
I can’t believe I missed my blogaversary! I would smack myself but in all fairness it’s been a pretty crappy month. I have had two family members pass away within weeks of each other and my little big girl is recuperating from a nasty cold and a double ear infection. So thank goodness, I found this drawing in my computer that I could post on this belated occasion. Drawing on duralar is like taking a chicken bone to a gun fight, But hey! I did it, it looks ok and I’ll never have to do it again.
I love my blog and I’m really blessed for my virtual artist friends and family members for their love and support…then I would like to thank the Academy…(hee hee just kidding). It means a lot that I can go to an artist’s blog and ask ,”Hey, could you tell me how you did that?” And they tell me with no hesitation. Another example is when I bought this drawing book and I didn’t understand some of what author was trying to get across, so I emailed her. She took time out of her busy schedule and she explained it to me again, breaking the instruction down more for me. She didn’t have to and could have easily told me to shove off or buy another one of her books, but she didn’t. It’s many many little things like that has kept me going for the last two years and makes me want to keep going, keep drawing, and keep learning…. I hope one day that I will be able to pay it forward.
Be Well and Happy!
