Some of you already know, but before I picked up the knitting needles, I was an avid artist. Throughout my childhood, I was never far from a pencil. Mom knew the easiest way to occupy me was to give me a stack of paper, and something to draw with.
As the years progressed, I tended to stick with my favourite medium - coloured pencils. Though I've been known to do the odd watercolor now and again.
But then I found knitting. And you all know how hard that bug can bite. Over the past decade, I'm lucky if I pick up the pencils once a year (other than the odd doodling during boring work meetings.) But lately, maybe because of the low knitting mojo, I've been getting the itch to scratch out a few drawings.
So on Sunday, I dusted off my art supplies (literally), selected a photo for inspiration...
At least I managed to get my coloured pencils sorted once again
