I joined the Yahoo! group Every Day Matters, and downloaded the prompts, but so far had not gotten the courage to start. I am determined to silence the inner critic and I know if I want to get better, I need to practice.
I began, surprisingly enough, with EDM #1 - draw a shoe. I am not thrilled with it, but I think it is not awful. The other night I got out that really cute journal with the bear and bee on the front that I won from Peggy Gatto and listed the first 159 EDM challenges. I am going to try to draw one thing each day until I get there. I don't know that I will necessarily follow them in order - who knows?
Meanwhile, I have been babysitting and cleaning house. I finally got my art room into a better arrangement and have found lots of treasures I forgot I had. That has got to be the best thing about cleaning - finding treasure. I even found a board book that I made when Morgan was just little. I had completely forgotten about it. It is really nice - I haven't done anything like that in a long time. I made digital scrapbook pages and pasted them into a blank board book. I used my EDM journal to prop it open for the pix. No she doesn't have brown spots on her forehead. It appears that I got a little mildew or something on it.
Gotta go get the roast out of the oven. Hope to have another sketch for you tomorrow.
