Another one of my New Year's Resolutions is to start a weekly "Sketchbook Friday" feature.
I'm bad about drawing and painting only when I have to--like when I'm on deadline or creating something for a contest or other specific reason. I've got to get back to sketching daily and keeping those wheels greased, and since I'm a deadline kinda girl, I'm making myself post something from my sketchbook each week.
I know. Sounds tough, right. You must DRAW.
Anyway, last week I was volunteering at my daughter's school. I was griping about it a bit because it was taking me away from my creative time. But when I got there, I saw this precious girl:
I'm not sure what the magic age is when it ceases to be cute to show your belly, but I'm here to tell you that at age seven, it's adorbs!
And I learned a good lesson. We all need to get OUT of our head-down, nose to the paper (or computer) world and see what's out there. You never know where some wonderful inspiration will be.
Happy Friday, y'all!
