For a while now, I have been wanting to get "back to basics" and pick up pencils, pens and paints again. Time is definitely a factor but I decided it would take my creativity in a new direction and so I am trying to carve out time every day to do even just a quick drawing. With sketchbook and fine tipped pens in hand I started with imagery that reminded me of our garden that surrounded our previous home in Connecticut. The pansies grew like crazy and butterflies were everywhere. So periodically I will share the pages with you and I am sure they will at some point be transformed into full color.
