There is nothing more satisfying to me than to create something.
I have spent so much time lately discovering new things to create, like jewelry, or photos, or designs, that I have forgotten my first love, drawing.
Today for the first time in a long time I picked up my pencil and drew in my sketchbook. I wanted to try something different than what I had drawn in the last few months, so I drew people. Lately I had been exclusively sketching dogs or other animals. I had forgotten that people are my favorite thing to draw.
So, I pushed myself a little further by drawing people in yoga poses. It was both difficult and extremely fun. I took it a step even farther and overlaid each picture with abstract color in photoshop. With this new found discovery, I have decided to make a goal to draw at least once every day. I don't want to forget again how much I love it. It is one of my gifts from God, that I have done as far back as I can remember. Who am I to push that gift aside and not refine it? I vow to never again push it aside.
I of course will continue with my new found hobbies, such as painting, photography, dog training, sewing, and jewelry making, and hopefully I will develop those into some kind of career, or higher purpose... But I wont forget about drawing again.
It just feels too good.
