I never thought I could draw and I was cool with that. But my husband told me that I have talent after I had a drawing fit some years ago. When the fit was over (the lasted about 3 months or so). I moved on with my life.
Lately though, a more controlled form of the fit returned and I want to explore it. So I’ve been stocking up on supplies to throw myself into this activity. Like I said, I’ve dabbled in the past, you know, a sketch here and there (pencils and charcoals), an occasional dance with watercolour …
Why nothing more consistent? A pinch of laziness, a dash of self-doubt and a dollop of fear. So recently, I said to myself, “Enough!”
My OCD replied, “Load up on the best quality supplies”. And that’s what I’ve been doing.
The plan? Learn sketching techniques before moving on to painting in January 2014. My sketching supplies should arrive in a week or so).
And there it is. My art goals are “out there”.
