Finally, a few moments to do something “artistic” that is just because I want to, and not for a challenge. I sketched her and then used watercolor crayons to paint her.
I am just about over my head in challenges this year, and I’m in the process of pruning them, to be honest. My Bible art journaling I do just because I want to, not usually part of a challenge. Otherwise, most all the art I have done recently has been basically an “assignment.” When it becomes a chore instead of a joy, time to back down on some things!
I had not done anything “artsy” for a while. It was quite therapeutic. I am not good with faces, and would never attempt a real portrait, but it is fun to create a whimsical character. To see her come alive on the paper was pure fun! I will keep practicing.
(Note to my readers: I do not post everything I do, believe it or not. I scrapbook for hours (days!) on end and rarely if ever show those projects. I also have various art projects that I only post in some private groups or not at all.)
