Draw out the happiness

I have had a difficult time making myself sit down and create lately. I don't want to delve too much into personal issues here so let me be brief. I struggle with bouts of depression. I wasn't taking care of myself and didn't pay attention when the warning signs appeared. It sucked. I'm okay. Just another reminder that I need to start up an exercise regimen. Again. Sigh. 

Ahem, moving on.... :)

Here are a few doodles I did today (finally) and boy, am I sure glad I put my Papermate mechanical pencil to some plain ol' copy paper. Seriously sweeties, those yellow pencils are my fav! I have used them for years and I have a smallish stash of them. Okay, maybe not so small.

These sketches reminded me that:

I really can draw!

I really do have a talent!


I really really need to use it! Every. Single. Day.

Because, at the end of the day, drawing helps draw out the happiness in me.


  1. Beautifully put and beautiful drawings!

  2. You deserve to be happy! Love you with all my heart!
