Challenge: One Book, One Pen, One Month, #4

Last week, the end of this challenge.
Oddly, I think I am the only one who did it!
No matter; I am developing a drawing habit.
Next I take the 75-day challenge from Brenda Swenson.
I know I will break her rules, because I LOVE sepia ink.
Oh well, my challenge, my life, my love of brown ink!

Another week of Sketchbook Skool.
So far, I think Brenda is the best teacher.
She was inspiring, articulate, but most of all she came back through
and looked at student work online several times and engaged.
This is important, especially to a newer artist who feels a bit lost or
like they are not very good — she commented and encouraged and corrected.

    The one book one pen challenge was fun. I missed all the different colors. I was surprised my pen has held out. I can say it helped me focus more on the writing and less on the other stuff.

    Katie – saw a quote over the weekend that made me think of you.

    “Don’t worry if you’re making waves simply by being yourself. The moon does it all the time.” By Scott Stabile. (I know you don’t worry, but thought the connection to the moon making waves was lovely).
