Throwback Thursday..... Art

Zentangle Inspired drawing of the state of Kentucky
“Heaven must be a Kentucky kind of place.” 
― Daniel Boone
I’ve been missing both art and Kentucky, so today only seemed fitting to re-share a piece I finished about a year and a half ago. Kentucky has always been home to me and I hope some day to be able to return home.  This finished piece measures 18" by 24" and was drawn on Strathmore mixed media paper.  I have it framed and it is now hanging above my New Home Treadle sewing machine.

I love drawing but often put it aside to do other crafty things like embroidery, knitting or sewing.  I have found myself in a bit of a “crafting funk” lately, and while I have socks on my needles, fiber that needs to be spun and an embroidery piece to work on, I just am not in the mood to work on any of these projects.

So out came my paper and pens, and I have decided to finally work on the mate to a piece I finished last year.  I think I have missed drawing and I am totally enjoying what I am working on.  I will get back to my other projects that need to be finished, but meanwhile I’m going to just enjoying drawing again.

I love pen and ink, and plan to draw more this year.  Who knows, I might even get back into watercolor too!

Until next time, be creative!
