Rest and creativity go hand in hand for us artist types. Finding the balance isn't always easy, but when you do, you'll be hooked!
From my sketchbook emerges snippets from my everyday travels, observations and musings. I find sketching to be therapeutic...good for the memory, too!
An ode to April 15th?
My Favorite Things - Marvelous Marvao, Portugal (Arguably one of the most spectacular places on earth!)
Her jaw was firm and set,
Facing off a threat?
I sketched her on the sly,
In case she saw me spy.
From My Sketchbook - Rhymes and Doodles
(Or, making good use of my subway commute time to practice my sketching!)
Many things to contemplate,
And several chores to delegate.
If I'm gonna go with the flow,
I think I'll need a cup of joe.
Why sketching has helped me to face my anxiety and how it might help you, too!
If you want to feel truly blessed
You'll need more than just beauty rest,
You can focus on the here and now,
Or dream up several words to rhyme with cow.
The most seen expression on the subways these days...
