mi viejito

This is flashback week, I can clearly remember sitting on a wooden chair at a tall table, in a long drawing class.  Big pad of paper on hand and many pencils from hardest to softest in my pencil case.

We were to sketch super light and build up to as dark as we could get.  This is many, many hours of drawing and blending, no smudging allowed.  Sounds tedious, but those hours went by too fast!  This was one of those times when I amazed myself with what my hands could do, I so vividly remember the bliss!

This sits in a prominent spot in my studio as a reminder to keep pushing myself, have fun and to take the time to do it well ’cause lots of good things happen that way.
