50 Years Later
i'm coming back. i promise.
ok J? ok???
PS i kind of hate sock monkeys but not. my mom has this incredible collection of them..but the ANTIQUE ONES..like Depression-era. they are so, so special. so i love the sock monekys too cos she loves them. i'm more a rabbit teddy bear dollie girl.
I love this picture of this lil dog. stoled from internet while browing for monkey pictures to do a drawing for my mom's birthday card. phew. glad that worked out. she liked the drawering.
i haven't had Drawing Patience for awhile now. you have to CLEAR the space for drawing and i have no surfaces right now. every surface is full. plus i am slow and so much time goes by between drawing sessions, i have to RE-TEACH myself how to draw every time i sit down. then there is all this anxiety around that like: I suck. I can't draw.
BUT then i remember. drawing as a kid was part of my survival. plus a way to Make Friends. i drew with both hands as a 3 year old.I drew at school. I discovered I could draw crowds from my live drawing. I drew Peanuts characters by rote and the kids made a hushed circle around me while i drew and drew. a boy with beautiful white yellow dutch hair said, 'charles schulz would be jealous'.
Back to the drawing board.
i have to go sew some bunnies now.
i'll put up the ridiculous mexico trip pictures shortly!
