In these crazy times it is hard for me to wrap my mind around doing my own creative work. I know it will come in time but that also I should be doing small things everyday to improve. I have done some painting but not on canvas - just at the barn I keep my horse at. It was a fun activity and I think it reminded me that I can still think creatively even if its not drawing or inking.
To try and stretch out my drawing muscles - I signed up for a class through my employer. I unfortunately did not read the course catalog very well and did not realize it was meant for those with no drawing practice or creative background. As you might guess I became underwhelmed and uninspired, add onto it the global coronavirus crisis and my drawing muscles became atrophied.
Drawing at one point in my life was my crutch to cope with the things I couldn't control. As I became an adult and could actually control my life it became less so. While I have many ways to cope, I do think I need to supple my creative drawing muscles. I can't draw us through this pandemic but with little else to do and a lot of time on my hands, its now or never!
