Day 75

Parting words...

75 that they are done, I wonder where the time
I learned it IS possible to set aside a few min. each day
to do this, I also learned to count the pages of a
journal before choosing that journal.  As about 8 days
worth I had to divide the pages in half, making
the drawing space really small...but I
worked with it.
Some days I struggled to find an object,  used
my imagination on those days.  Other days
the object just jumped out at me. 
 Think small, and don't be overwhelmed
if you want to draw, draw.....
Drawing is one line in relation
to is a learning
process, in which I am
still learning...
have fun
thanks for going on this journey
with me...go to Brenda Swenson's 75 Day Sketch Challenge,
and start yours!

Day 72

Tootsie Roll Pop Indian

According to my friend at work, if you get
a tootsie roll pop, look at the wrapper
if there is an indian anywhere on it
you are to crumple up the wrapper and
throw it over your opposite shoulder
and make a wish....
