The beauty of drawing

Tonight I wanted to talk about drawing, and how powerful
the drawing experience is for me.  I have drawn in hospital
waiting rooms, in restaurants, on trains, planes, and in my
home whenever the mood hits, or when what I'm looking at is 

This is a drawing of my son, and thirteen years later it
tugs at my heartstrings. How lovely it was to have children
hanging about in the kitchen. Plus I love the detail.

Have a loving what you do day.
