And along those lines I've set a new goal to draw daily. I've set this kind of goal before, but to make it stick I'm going to start with setting a timer for 10 minutes every day. As Flylady says, I can do *anything* for 10 minutes. (that's my mantra at the gym, might as well use it for art practice too.) And starting with today I did a 10 minute drawing of these budding branches that I dragged home in the spring. I keep them in a vase on the top of a shelf because I love the way they twist all over the place. I only got one of the branches done in the 10 minutes, but I made myself stop when the timer went off.
And here are a few unfinished trees - I kept getting dragged away from my drawings by needy children :) Now that school has started I hope to get to finish a few more drawings!
