New Drawings



I've been stagnating since before Christmas: mired in a quicksand of cranky mood, an unhealthy amount of self-pity, and no motivation. NOT a nice place to be. So, I have a new resolve to do at least one drawing a week. It doesn't have to be of da Vinci-like quality, just a few minutes of laying graphite on a clean sheet of paper. I'm hoping this will get the creativity flowing again.

Good for you for coaxing your creativity out of it's shell! Very nice drawings & I especially love the wolf!

BTW, I fresh back from traveling and just checked out the recipe post.....I'm going to make that soup soon!

Very nice start post Christmas :) Keep it up! Your sketches remind me to give some paper and pencils to my foster son who is currently "stagnating" because he cut his foot!

Great drawings, Kate. You should definitely let your creativity and put those pencils to work :)
