I need to start drawing again!

I've always loved to draw and paint. I will admit, it's been years since I've done anything on paper. My outlet is usually on nails these days.

Yesterday, I was plugging in a lamp and I stood there and admired a couple of drawings that I have hanging in the living room. It made me want to draw again.

I took a drawing class, years ago, and the final was for us to draw a portrait. I've always loved the photo that my mother in law had hanging in her hallway of Mr. Bruises when he was two years old. I asked her if I could borrow it for my final. She was a little skeptical since it was the only print she had. I assured her I would guard it with my life and I did and returned it to her in perfect condition.

After I completed Mr. Bruises' portrait, I decided to do one of mine. Even though we are two years apart in age, we are the exact same age in these drawings. Remembering how much I enjoyed drawing them makes me want to do it again.

I cannot draw at all. I'm not good at any of those kinds of art. I'm good at a different type of art: I'm good at playing the piano, I'm good at baking, cooking.

Can't wait to see your drawings! Have a great Thanksgiving. Please give the boys a big hug for me.
