However, gardening is not my strong suit. Neither is drawing flowers. I was encouraged by a blog reader to try it - I love flowers, I love drawing, so why not? Well, the whole time I was drawing I kept thinking "so THIS is why I usually draw naked people..." With the figure, I only have to keep track of two arms and two legs...with flowers and leaves and stems - wow! my ADD kicked in!
Don't get me wrong - I enjoyed the quiet time sitting in my back yard as the kids napped - totally worn out from the sun and water on the boat today - but I think I need a lot more practice! Here's a few shots of my work space, and the pastels that I am brave enough to show!
