Drawing and Other Things
Yesterday I did this drawing as I am following the instructions in the Danny Gregory book. I was quite pleased with this drawing...I thought I had gotten it close. But then yesterday set in with lots of sadness...two friends had died, and it just began to depress me so much. May their souls rest in peace and light perpetual shine upon them.
Later I tried drawing the cat...no good. This morning I went back to the Gregory book to draw leaves of a plant...no good. That depresses me, but I guess that happens sometimes.
Thank goodness for Violette and her group. When I am feeling down about my art, they always bring me up.
This is my morning schedule. When I arise, I let all the animals in and out and feed anyone who needs feeding. I open the blinds in the living and dining rooms, check the humidifier, and then go to the Blue Room where I
1. read the daily reading in my Bible
3. write a page per Artist's Way or Natalie Goldberg
4. read whatever book..now Goldberg and Gregory
Tonight we are taking Laurie down to Stephenville, picking up John, going out to eat, and then going to see the production of Guys and Dolls at Tarleton. Should be lots of fun and an uplifter.
