Since I started doing these drawings a few months ago, I have really come to appreciate the therapeutic nature of having a creative outlet. The past couple of weeks have been demanding and I feel like I’ve been pulled away, so I’m committing to working on something artistic every day if I can, even if I’m only able to spend a little bit of time on it between obligations. I started a new piece over the weekend. The layers & level of detail usually take me a few days to complete anyway, so it’s good to have something to chip away at. Here’s a drawing I completed fairly recently. :)
Thank you for such a thoughtful comment. I share those feelings of self-doubt, and if there is anything I can say to encourage you, please do allow yourself the freedom of your artistic expression. For too long I tossed and turned with a desire to create something that would be “good enough”. Well, it’s amazing how that idea kept me from eeking out practically anything at all. Now that I’m finally beginning to move past that a little, it has been a surprisingly positive experience, and the beautiful responses I’ve received from you and others here on 43T have been so encouraging. I’m very grateful and I would love to pass that along.
You’re welcome! And your new goal is an excellent idea – mind if I join you? :)
