Dear Diary

It's official. I am only writing to myself. Even my kids have given up checking my blog. Guess I'm not that interesting. It's my own fault I know. Should write every day, but the truth is I just can't get motivated lately. I want to draw, but can't think of a subject. Would write, but what to say. Maybe it is just because it is summer and I would rather be outside. Go to get my grandkids next week. They will keep me busy, but can't use them as an excuse for not drawing since I haven't been drawing while they were gone.

If anyone reads this, please give me a suggestion of what would be an interesting summer drawing. Something they would like to see on paper.

I guess with all the photos out there it sometimes seems pointless to draw for any reason other than my own enjoyment. Maybe that is the secret. Find something I enjoy to draw, then maybe others will like it too.  I just have to get past that blank page. I find it so intimidating. Once I get started I love what I'm doing.

Dear diary, since no one reads this it would seem pointless to ask them to pray for me, so  I guess I will just have to pray for inspiration myself.

Having a down day,

Its Friday and my goal this weekend is to drawing something new. Don't yet know what it will be, but looking forward to creating something pleasing to look at.

Don't give up on me there will be something new to see soon.

You can leave comments now

For anyone who tried to leave a comment but couldn't, I think I have fixed that problem. So, feel free to try to leave a comment again.

I look at all the artist online and wonder how I could even compete with what is already out there. There are so many artists, most of whom are much better than I am. Guess I better keep my day job.

This doesn't mean I'm planning on stopping, just haveing a slump right now. Those of you who like my work, don't give up. There will be more added.

Obnoxious Teens

OK for those of you waiting for my next drawing, it got stalled. For anyone new to my site, Please check out the tabs above to see my drawings.

About the new drawing I promised....I lost my inspiration. I was going to draw my 15 year old daughter, but then she skipped class, we got into huge argument over it and I have not felt like staring at her face for long hours in order to draw it. Have been doing a lot of spring cleaning instead.

My mom told me that God makes teenagers obnoxious so that you won't miss them so much when they are gone. I just pray he has given me enough the patience to last that long.

I'll get back to drawing soon....so please check back..
