STIFLED TALENT

Can you believe I drew this picture of Barbra Streisand, about 20 years ago. I was so excited when I found it in the pit of my closet, the scary one that swallows things, never to be seen again--well, at least not for 20 years or so. I think I drew it from a record album cover where she had this black scarf draped over her head. I haven't picked up a pencil in years to try to draw again. I guess I never thought I was very good at it, but looking at this picture now, I think I had some self-esteem issues. It's not bad. At least I could tell who it was supposed to be *grin*.

I'm somehow hoping that stumbling upon this picture was a sign, like telling me that since I've recently opened the flood gates of artistic verve in myself, that it's now okay to try to draw again. I sure hope it would all come back to me if I did decide to give it a try. I still have my watercolor pencils and I'm sure I can scrape up a number 2 pencil somewhere in the house, for the general sketch.

I'm kind of excited now. I think when I get home from work tonight, I'm going to go pencil hunting. Years ago, when my friend Dawn moved away from AZ, she willed to me one of her old sketch pads. I still have that pad and now I have a way to put it to use. Viva La Sketching!!!!

Stay tuned. I may post my first, newly sketched item after 20 years, if I get a good one.

oh my gosh, you still have that sketch pad?! I have been gone for how long now? *grin* And I definitely knew who the sketch was of...man, do you remember that night I came over at like 11pm and asked what you were doing, just because I was lonely and bored with Dave in the field, and you were watching "The Way We Were" and you let me crash with you? God I miss those times! The picture is great, get out there and sketch some more.
