I have added something new to my morning routine….DOODLING. This is something that I did obsessively all through school (sometimes instead of homework). We were given paper covers for our textbooks, I would cover mine with the blank side out and cover it with doodles. I still have a few of them as a matter of fact. Seems I was a huge fan of The Doors and Iron Maiden. My Nanny would insist that I save all my doodles and she had been saving them since I was very little. When I was in my 30’s she gave me an album filled with all of them including my very attempt at drawing a face (I was probably about three). Looking back at them it makes me realize I need to practice more-I used to be so much better. No better time than now to begin again. Throughout this process I became aware that each day is different. There were some days I felt very creative and inspired and other days just went through the motion of discipline and just got some color of the paper. I plan on posting these just once a month for a while if anyone cares to take a peek.
Seems I am still drawing like a child. Hopefully these will start to get better.
Have a great day!!
