EDM #19: Draw something you’ve made


5x8" moleskine, slicci pen, watercolor

This took forever. Not when I actually sat down to draw, but the process of deciding what to draw. I couldn't think of anything I'd actually "made" like a sculpture or a bookshelf. A thing. I considered baking a ham-spinache quiche that my friend Laura taught me to make. I considered the green monster costume I sewed for my daughter for a play this past spring. I considered the stitched journals that I make. But in the end, a smart friend suggested drawing a journal, a stack of moleskines, even drawing a mandala that I'd drawn. Suggested that I get on with it in the spirit of moving forward and working on drawing not on deciding what to draw. And so I flipped open the noticing journal, a hardback book, to the PINK gridded pages and proceeded to draw...

I'm working through Danny Gregory's Everyday Matters {EDM} drawing list. The idea is explained here, and all of the drawings are tagged EDM Challenge.

What a cool drawing of a collage! My heads spins with the possibilities: a collage of a drawing, a drawing of a sketchbook inside the sketchbook and round and round it goes! :-)

I'm far behind with my EDM drawings... but I did one yesterday - I'm not near to #19 though, and I love that prompt! You made a fabulous drawing of a faboulous page! I can understand the 'thinking part'... I am at that point too... (EDM #6, I cannot decide what my fave is...) I guess you (your friend) teach me a lesson here: just START. Hm. I will. I promise. Today - I - will!!!

I joined the EDM yahoo group, thinking I'd post my sketches each day. Oh, wow. I haven't posted anything! HA! But sometimes a person's reach must exceed her grasp, or what's a heaven for?

I love this page. It inspires me. Rock on!
