I don't know why, but I have realized my innate desire to draw & doodle my brains out! Jon has been so supportive of me, buying me colored pencils, paint brushes, art pads, and oil paints. He's just the sweetest spouse. I have been putting off drawing because I can't leave my art out. Sometimes you need to be able to do a little work, and let it sit, coming back to it later with fresh eyes. We unfortunately live in a small one bedroom basement with a very very small table which serves as counter space + our dinning table + our desk for computers & work + anything else we need a table top for. So this limited space does not allow me to leave my work out for days at a time until I'm ready to leap back in again.
This has been a challenge.
I think I've figured it out though. I've been trying to do just a little bit of art every day. Whether it be writing in my journal to doodle the events, or using my colored pencils on a paper drawing, or pulling out the water colors for a quick picture. So I guess the thing that has made the greatest impact is the realization that I can contribute to & grow my talents in small ways, not just in huge projects.
So here is one I colored the other night. Just a mermaid, it wont take too long to finish her.
