Each one is Precious

Posted 5 days ago

I still have about 10,000 photos on my Desktop that haven't been posted here yet. That's 10,000 people that I saw and drew at Parties and Events. Posting them here is on my To-Do list, if you know what I mean.

I did get up to clearing out my Google Drive recently. Had to focus on that because I was running out of space in my Google Drive.

I found a lot of Caricatures in my Google Drive that I had drawn at Events. Guessing that they're probably also on my Desktop (I have no idea how they got into Google Drive), I deleted them all. Oh.

But what if they're not there? What if they're not on my Desktop (or already posted here at my Website)? I grabbed just one of them. Did I post this picture here previously?

I love drawing again!

Posted 21 days ago

I love drawing again! I rediscovered it because I have so much time off during this pandemic.

How did I rediscover the heart ~ the feel good to draw? It happened because I'm learning the drums.

Talk about new input! Everything is new for me on the drums. A beginner, and I love everything about it.

Of course, I can easily do beginner stuff in drawing. So I felt like it would be a waste of time to draw basic shapes. When I do my Professional Artwork aka Drawing Caricatures, or Illustrating Stories, I have to focus on representing what's Out There.

But I discovered that beginner stuff is what I like to do when I'm alone! Why would I bother drawing stranger after stranger when I'm not communicating with or entertaining them? It's that beginner Artwork ~ the stuff that you do early in a 'relationship', that's so compelling when you're alone. Beginner Artwork ~ when you're discovering the nuances of pencil-use, not yet sure about what aspects of the pencil you'll need for when you get good enough to represent what's Out There. The beginner stuff is an internal experience of discovery.

I don't really care about what people look like. I like to joke around when I'm with people. And I like to make pictures. That comes out as ' I draw Caricatures when I'm with people, but there's no reason to do them when I'm alone.

When I'm home alone, I enjoy all sorts of things ~ including music and art. My way. When there is no purpose for picking up the pencil, nobody here to entertain, not going to get any money for drawing it, nothing to tell anyone.... That's when I finally got back to the thrill of the pencil. How good it feels to make it work so successfully.

These shapes are not needed. Nobody asked me to make them. They won't teach me anything new. It's passing the time with pencil and paper.

Just like keeping time on the drums. Peace

It's better to do Tribal lines with Facepainting, but I just used a Caricature marker this time ~ because it's here and no mess and no set-up work. This is my time off. Not getting paid to do this. And I already know how to do it. So I just want to do what's easy. I like All types of Art Supplies.
