Halloween is near and I couldn’t be more excited. However, there isn’t a lick of the typical Halloween decor up. We’ve been so busy almost every day it’s difficult to find the time to haul everything out of the garage. Plus, with L getting into everything and O’s separation anxiety, I’m thinking the only decorating we’ll be doing is on our front porch.
In any case, I’ve been in the mood to draw and doodle. I thought I’d try out drawing people/figures and objects instead of my usual zentangles/zendoodles.
As you can see there’s definitely some room for improvement, ha.
I dabble in a lot of creative hobbies and interests. I bounce around from writing to making jewelry, to singing, then gardening, to decorating…
However art, specifically drawing, has always been my go-to. Sitting down with pen in hand, sketchbook in front of me and my favorite tunes in the background is unadulterated bliss. I can leave the hectic world behind, get in my creative zone and conjure my own brand of magic.
For me, art and music go hand in hand. I love both equally and unequivocally.
Just a couple pieces I’ve been working on to pass the time before our newest little monster arrives. Any day now!
I’ve been too tired at night to stay up and draw, so this may be my last piece for a while. However, I would like to create another piece before the baby arrives. I’ve got 2 weeks (give or take) left!
I managed to find an hour and a half (a whole hour and a half, people!) of free time to go ahead and finish this piece.
Sure, it was midnight when I was done, but I’ll take what I can get!
I miss drawing. It’s so nice to be able to just zone out and create random designs and such. It’s a good way to gain clarity and relax.
As I ease into the last 4 weeks of my pregnancy, I’m finding it harder to carve out time for myself. With a 6y/o and 17 month old around, life can get a bit hectic.
Tonight I made the time. It’s been months since I’ve drawn anything so it’s a little rough, but I like it just the same.
