A Drawing A Day – Week 44

It has been tough this week to remain motivated, it’s almost as though with the finishing post in view I can’t be bothered anymore.  I started the year with excitement and trepidation not sure if I could do it. During the year the project was a constant thing that I hung onto in a time of change, it was a punctuation point of every day, a sense of achievement every day.  Now it feels more like a chore; guess I am having a bad week.  Ignore me………..

    Hello – I’ve never responded to a blog before. But, I want you to know as a very beginning student of botanical art, I really am inspired by what you have done. Sometimes things in our lives can overwhelm us and our passions seem to fade as a result. Don’t give up, it is just a bump in the road and probably due to the time change (my excuse for not doing stuff). Anyway, I hope you continue; your drawings are very helpful to me and they are beautiful. Take care and blessing to you.

    Sorry you’re having a difficult week! I think we all go through times like this. My husband was only saying this evening that he can’t seem to read at the moment – he is three-quarters through a good book but can’t seem to finish it.
    I love your life drawing and your Chinese Lanterns are excellent.

    Sue, I understand how you feel. I got behind in my weekly sketch and have been having to draw every day to catch up, and it has overwhelmed me and taken the joy out of it. I really, really think it does become a chore when done every day. I enjoy the discipline and creative impetus, but I’ve got other things to do as well.

    Oh my goodness, these are wonderful! My favorite was “snug” with the lovely shading and all, and then I came to the Chinese Lanterns. We had some at our previous home, and they are brightest, cheeriest blooms! And the “skeletons” they leave behind are just fascinating. Love your work….keep on keeping on!

    Bad week but great art, I especially like the last two. I admire the fact that you have got this far and I am sure you can hang in there. Anyone who can continue to draw through such a major move will certainly hang in there for this last few weeks and certainly deserves to grumble for an off week. We love your work and dedication.
