a note

I haven't been reading much lately. Usually I'd finish a book like The Truth About Dogs (which is really fascinating, by the way) in two or three days, but here it is four days gone and I've barely read two chapters. There's a good reason, though! For two years I haven't done any art at all. Then a week ago I wondered if I'd lost my skills, and sat down to try drawing. I was ecstatic to discover my eyes and hands have not forgotten how to work together! So, as I only have a limited amount of free time in a day, reading is getting shuffled aside. I'm just enjoying sketching so much. Posting here will be sporadic for a while, as well as commenting on other blogs. But I haven't disappeared, and I certainly haven't stopped reading! I'll still drop in from time to time, or whenever I finish a book.

You can see my drawings here.

They are great drawings! I am terrible at art, so am jealous of your ability. I am especially impressed that you are able to draw so well using just a ball point pen!

I am glad you are drawing again, Jeane. It's such a rewarding feeling to rediscover a talent you thought you might have forgotten.

Your drawings are great, by the way! I love the detail.

Like Jackie, I have no talent when it comes to art. I draw a mean stick figure. LOL

Sometimes we just need a change and it's good to do other things and keep old talents oiled. I daren't click on the drawings at the moment, but will look at them later. From all the comments, they sound like a real treat!

Glad to hear you have rediscovered you creative side! You've such a talent. My favorite work of yours has always been Batty Scottie - I use that quite often as my computers wallpaper :)
