Every Day in May—EDM #101 a bar of soap


After a long time of working through the sad days that crippled my creativity, I decided to take action to get back into doing what I used to love. Not having done much drawing and painting in almost two months, I am quite out of practice and I knew the longer time drifted the worse it was getting both in my head and what was coming out on paper. So the "Every Day in May/EDM" challenge sounded like just the kick in the butt I needed to jump start my creativity and get me sketching again. Besides, I am going to Lisbon in July for the Urban Sketchers Symposium and I need to get in sketching shape.

I did manage a quick sketch of my friend Mary's mother Julie, on Easter Sunday, and realized how much I love to draw, but it just wasn't enough . So here I go, a drawing every day for the next month...

Wish me luck

I like how you included the "Kohler" thingy.
Where can I get this daily thing to draw?

Oh, Jennifer, so good to see you back. I hope you're doing ok--I've thought of you often. You sure don't miss a beat--these are beautiful! I particularly love the portrait. Elegant. Welcome back, and know you're in my thoughts.

Lisbon! Sounds wonderful!

Glad you're back, I understand dry spots. Like you mine come& are so hard to start again. Everyday in may sounds like a great place to start.

Definitely wishing you lots and lots of luck. You did a great job on both the portrait and the bar of soap. I thought a bar of soap sounded so boring to draw but you've turned it into quite an interesting picture.

You continually manage to refocus the mundane into something fun and energetic. Your unique artistic signature is simply a joy to visually imbibe! It revitalizes me.

It is wonderful to see you back at it girl...and talk about a kick in the pants...Lisbon!!! A major Muse awakening for sure...:) Hugs from the desert!

Always miss you when you're gone. Good to see you back and in fine form. Pushing back the darkness with fluid drawings and floats of vibrant colour. YES!
