After a long break from drawing, I’ve started up again. I declared to myself that I would have no “rules” and not try to make it anything in particular. I would just draw. If I wanted to draw the same thing every day, or doodles, or trace patterns? Fine.
So the other morning, with crisp fall beauty all around, I went out to one of my favorite drawing spots. And you know what? It worked. Reminding myself that I have no rules, that I can draw like kids do — freely, for fun, for the joy of it — made the difference.
Look for more drawings to appear in this space in the next few weeks. So good to remember that inspiration comes from doing. So good to be drawing again!
