20 consecutive days of drawing and painting

3 Comments

Feathers in my sketchbook. 20 days of drawing consecutively.

My mom called to say, “You haven’t painted today.” Thanks for the reminder mom.

Yesterday I didn’t feel like it but I grabbed my sketchbook anyway. I didn’t want to break my streak. I grabbed a magazine and inspired by the feathers on the cover, started drawing. One night this week I even got out of bed when I realized I’d forgotten to draw! I know how quickly one skipped day can become two or three or more.

Even when I’m reluctant to start drawing or painting once I get started  the switch flips and I’m into it.

  1. That’s exactly what I’m finding with this ‘face a day may’ thing that I’m doing….some days it’s just SO HARD to get around to doing it, and I WILL put it off to the end of the day, when I’m tired…. but, once I start…..no problem. 20 days in a row….WELL DONE! Keep up the good work, Eileen, I really like how you did that feather duster!
