(Days 1,2, and 3)
O, this challenge I love. I love to draw.
The only other thing I ever wanted to be besides an author is an artist.
Drawing is something I have always done. I doodle. I sketch. I draw.
Except I haven't. In the last 20 years my drawing has been very limited. I'll blame having kids.
In 2011 I tried drawing every day for a year. I made it 3 months. But I really enjoyed that 3 months and I'm not sure why I stopped. Life got in the way like it usually does, probably.
So March 2013 is going to be a picture a day month.
So far I have realized that the TV is NOT good for drawing.
Ever since we got cable, our TV has been on constantly.
I don't really like TV.
Even when I go in the other room I can hear it. And it distracts me.
You can tell by the first two days of drawings. They are awful. The drawings are what I think the objects look like, but not what I saw.
The artichoke was so depressing that I tried a clementine.
I gave up and went to bed.
Day 2 was worse. This is ridiculous.
I could not concentrate.
It got a little better when the house was empty and the TV was off.
Not great, but not embarrassing.
This may be more of a challenge than I thought.
I may have to leave the house to accomplish it.
Running away from home to draw.
