Michelle W. challenges us to take a risk. So here goes.
I have always loved to draw and got pretty good at it. These days, I have so many other things on my plate that I don’t have time for serious drawing. I doodle – I can’t help it. Some of these doodles come out OK. I also like to color, now that coloring books are all the rage. Here are some of my artistic endeavors.
Made by rubbing over a net (that cheese came in) and woven placemat. After rubbing, I looked at the shape to decide what to make from it – a fish. 10-10-15
Fish doodle and The Thin House (both 2015)
Although I have “time wasters” in the title of this post, most of these were done while doing or waiting for something else. I can color while talking to people and find it’s helpful when I’m nervous and don’t want to say something I would regret later. Coloring is relaxing and I love experimenting with colors.
