A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

The humble pencil...........
Oh how I have neglected that glorious implement in my crafting and arty endeavours :D I have used a fine liner pen for most of my doodles and it is soooooo long since I have used a pencil that it seems completely alien to me. The other day I came across a bag full and got it into my head that I wanted to try once again to draw a face.One of my biggest regrets in life is that I am unable to draw lifelike portraits of people. I would so love to be able to look at a photograph and realistically recreate it. I have tried and tried believe me but somehow the capacity to do this escapes me. Maybe I haven't got the patience it deserves to create a masterpiece of my Grandson or Daughter or maybe this talent is born to us. Whichever it is I will have to content myself for the time being with re-acquainting myself with the grey matter (the one in my hand and the one in my brain...lol) and seeing where the journey takes me.
This one ended up a wee bit freaky but Que Sera, Sera :D
