It's day 365!! I have completed a drawing each day for a year. It's a reminder how fast a year passes, and I have enjoyed looking back through the 365 days this afternoon. As a review, last October 1st, I committed to participating in Inktober, a drawing using ink every day of October. Thank you to my friend Sally Dean for suggesting the endeavor. I completed a drawing every day of October, and knew right away on November 1st, that I was not finished... so I continued on. Each of my drawings was completed that day, including the two days in May I spent in the hospital having my knee replaced. Each drawing took between 1/2 hour to about 3 hours to complete. There were a few days when it was a stretch to get the drawing completed. I have drawn waiting for trains, planes, appointments, at restaurants, coffee shops, school meetings, movie theaters. I carry a sketchbook with me everywhere I go, and have set up a "cave" of easily-reached supplies next to my seat in the living room. Many of the drawings include watercolor, pastel, markers, pencils, watercolor pencils, or a combination of them.
I have enjoyed the year, and will continue tomorrow with day 366.
Thank you so much for following along!
