Drawing has always been a favorite childhood pastime which fell by the wayside when I became a mom . It seemed frivolous at the time. Now that my youngest is in highschool I have decided to revisit it. I am not by any means an artist just a person who loves to draw. I'm learning from books and artists who are generous enough to share their talents on YouTube.


Four years ago,  I began my journey back into drawing.  It was a long process muddled with frustration, impatience, loss of confidence and laziness. I finally reached that point where, no matter what the outcome, drawing has become a part of my every day. I have accepted my limitations but have not lost faith in my ability to do better.IMG_20180225_135845_275


Very appropriate considering all the snow that has fallen so far within the past three days. I can appreciate its beauty from behind my window, not my car but from my home. The biting, cold air is a refreshing change from the stale, warm air indoors. A quick pop outdoors, take a few deep breaths and pop right back in.IMG_20180205_202942_207.jpg


This summer, I came upon this plant called Elephant Ears. They grew in abundance under the big, shady trees where we used to play as children in my grandparents’ home. Obviously, I bought it, two of them actually. One of them didn’t make it but the other one seems to be doing okay. It’s scrawny and some of the stems are floppy. I think it wants to be planted in the ground but it won’t survive the cold. So, it’s staying inside and I will continue to care for it the best that I can.
