I thought I'd finally post this picture. I don't know why I don't blog more than I have lately. For some reason, I've not made time to do it. I've written some - not much, but I save it as a draft telling myself I just don't have time right now. I'll return later to it. But, I never do. I guess because I'm always pushing forward to the next thing on the agenda. Never really quite feeling like I've finished anything lately.
So...I've been working on that. I've been organizing and cleaning and accomplishing. It feels good. I've cleared stuff out of closets and cupboards and my spirit feels oh so lighter as a result. I've managed to even get some of it out of the house and into the trunk of my car. Today, I will take it to Goodwill or Out of The Closet. Period. The End.
The above tea kettle is one of my first drawings in my class that I took this summer. The teacher had us working on really large newsprint pads. There's actually a much larger attempt at drawing the kettle to the left of this. But I didn't like the way it was looking and I moved to the corner of the page to try again on a much smaller scale. What I learned in doing this drawing was that I have difficulty drawing large and free. I want things tight and controlled. Much like my life, I suppose.
