"under the leaves"
Inspiration for writing, painting, drawing, dreaming comes from everywhere. The leaves of this giant bird of paradise in the courtyard blew aside and I saw all the wonderful textures underneath. I captured them with my camera as I thought it would be a good drawing exercise. I'll give it a try and get back to you with how I do. Brace yourselves. It might be terrible.
I'm a writer. I've always written. That comes naturally to me. Starting drawing has given my creativity new life. I'm not good at it. That's not modesty... it's the truth. Rather than being discouraged, I'm finding the challenge of it has kicked my brain into a gear I didn't know I had.
You might want to try something you've always thought you couldn't do. Seeing little steps of progress has been exciting, but it goes beyond drawing. It's given me a new enthusiasm for writing as well.
Have a good weekend.
