I've been taking some well needed time off from illustrating to refresh and renew myself.
I need to step back and and see where my heart is at in this business, and what types of subjects give me passion such that it makes me eager to draw them.
I started off by doing a series of fruits and vegetables. Going back to my early days of fine art drawing I found myself playing with different textures , lines, shapes, patterns, and colors. It is oh-so-refreshing and fun!! I felt my soul slowly being filled again!
Then I was lead to do a self portrait that had been in mind for a while. I'm a sensitive soul and I think that is what makes my art come to life. I truly try to connect in some way with what I am drawing. I feel the passion coming back! Yay!
