This is a drawing of a snow covered car. I decided to do it as a last hoorah for winter. This is a pencil drawing highlighted in pen and watercolor pencil. Like all other seasons of life winter passes and then we move on to a better place where we will see our Savior face to face. So as you move through life remember faith is not just a word it needs to be the center of our lives.
Keeping yourself grounded is a hard thing to do sometimes. We set our goals so high they are not easily attainable. So the next thing we know we fail to reach our goals and in turn in feel like we may never succeed. So my advice in this New Year is to try and keep expectations a lower in order to insure being successful a little at a time. You know the old saying, “success breeds success.” So don’t stop setting goals just keep them obtainable.
It is the end of another year, it is also the end of my 365 Drawing Challenge. It is also the dawn of a New Year and the continuation of my 1001 Drawing Challenge. I decide to turn my 365 Drawings Challenge into a 1001 Drawings Challenge because I have developed a love for drawing illustrations and want to continue to develop my talents as an artist and an illustrator. I call on everyone reading this to challenge yourself to try something new in the coming New Year and stick to it for a whole year. So until my next post stay safe and have a Happy New Year.
While on Christmas break from my job I have found myself doing something I haven’t done in a long time-reading. I have made my way through two books of fiction and several non fiction art books. One of my goals for next year is to spend more time reading books on drawing illustrations. The reason, many of my friends tell me they like a lot of my more simplistic illustrations. Let me know what you think.
Well I guess winter has finally come to Pennsylvania. The temperatures have dropped and the wind chills make me say, “baby it’s cold outside.” Sooner no maybe later the outside decorations will have to come down but for now I think I’m going to stay in and draw. Sounds like a good plan to me. Well from my family to your have a good end of 2017 and a happy beginning to 2018. Yes I know I still have two more drawing for the end of the year but I just wanted to get in an early greeting.
