When you think of art you might say “I can’t draw?” Why?
It’s more a block in between your mind and your hands then you realize.
Children create more easily because they haven’t acquired the “hang up” of success. They just “do.” You are never too old to learn how to draw, paint, sculpt and there is no grade at the end either. So try a creation done by you. You may find that you enjoyed it and want to try another.
All the years I “did” art I was afraid to try portraits. While my artist mother can still teach me I am trying to learn a little about portraiture and practice!
I hope you’ll try something you’ve never tried before.
The prompt at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is carpe diem. I have never spent much time with portraiture. The human form takes alot of study but I am getting to the point in life that there is no time like the future. This photo is of my drawing – I have a long way to go before ‘ll be ready to paint a face on canvas.
"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
