Risk: My doodles and other “time wasters”

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.

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.

  1. You have some really good “doodles” and artwork you posted. I can completely understand about having lots on your plate but hope you are able to find more time for your artwork as it is really good.
