A Question....

I can't remember where....or when, but I ran across this question a few years back and for the life of me, I couldn't answer it. What is one thing you always wanted to do, but never thought you could. I struggled with this, thought about it some more, then eventually forgot about it. A few weeks ago, I was reading back through one of my journals, and realized a recurring theme...I wished in almost half of my entries that I could draw so that I could give birth to all of my ideas. At that time, I was mainly working in fabric and was just so frustrated that I could not get the idea out of my head and onto fabric...or even on paper..
Then, it hit me....One thing I've always wanted to do, but never thought I could...LEARN TO DRAW!!
So, I dusted off my copy of Drawing on the Right Side of Your Brain...

and started doing some of the exercises....I made a promise to myself that I would draw...something every night...my first drawing...well...

Ok...that was bold! Its supposed to be my daughter....I have a lot, lot, lot of learning to do! But, I will get there!


So, I have to ask you...how would you answer that question??? You just never know where it would lead you...jump in!!
Until next time,
Ophelia

Sorry, I just couldn't leave a post with a misspelled word!!
I took a class based on this book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain". You are really brave to post your first - but then most of us take ourselves way too seriously. I started drawing a few years ago and couldn't make anything recognizable for a while, but keep at it and it gets better!! You've taken the first step.
