From as far back as I can remember, I've always loved to draw and sketch and doodle and paint and whathaveyou. As a kid, my favorite gifts for Christmas and birthdays were art supplies of any kind (and bicycles).
Over the years, all that doodling got back -burnered to more practical endeavors. Recently, I realized I missed that weird girl that was always drawing.
So, yeah, I more or less made it a New Year's resolution to let the weird girl out to play every now and then. I will do "something" artsy every day. For at least 30 minutes. Now I have a freaking jungle growing on the wall of the Mancave, among other things.
Yesterday, I was sitting and pretending to be folding laundry and decided to draw some "still life" for 30 minutes - just anything non-moving that caught my eye. Thing is, still life has never been that interesting to me. I'm not one of those people that produces bowl of fruit after bowl of fruit after bowl of fruit. On that note, no barn paintings either. *YAWN*
On my search for a still drawing, my eyes found an interesting non-moving thing: Wolfgang.
He was on the laptop, typically totally immersed in whatever was on the screen.
Then, this weeks' topic at illustration Friday is "focused", so I thought it appropriate to link.
Then I folded laundry.
