My first try on ages.


I finally sat down in my studio and did something.

Oh my, I'm completely out of practice! It's been such a long time since I created anything that, at first, I didn't know what to do or how to do it. This face is made on a A-5 sketching sheet not meant for watercolors. I did it just to get started.
I think I need a challenge to work up my skills again. Perhaps I'll make a piece a day during August as I did once before. I was actually thinking of making another one of my painting/embroidery pieces, showing my visit in the US, but that'll have to wait until I can manage to draw again.
Later on today I'm going to pick up a series of books to read, I believe it's 52 in the series. I did read them years ago and want to reread them now. That is a factor which can stop me from making art on a daily bases. When I first get my nose in a book, it's always difficult to let go of the book.
I bought alot of different art supplies when in the US and do want to try them out too. I'll tell you more about that in another post, now I'm off to enjoy the sunshine. 


  1. She looks good! I completely understand about trying to get back to making art. I go through times like that, too. And I'm the same way about reading. If I start a really good book then I don't want to put it down. I've found that I read much more during the summer months, and do less art then.

  2. What a great job you did for being out of practice! I've had my nose stuck in a few books this summer too, like you said, it is hard to let go and do other things when the story is captivating your attention. Look forward to seeing your next project.
