the art of silliness

i’m taking an online ‘drawing’ course.  (i use the quotation marks because i don’t draw.) it's called 'the art of silliness'.
from the author of this book: Carla Sonheim Drawing Lab Book Coverhttp://carlasonheim.wordpress.com/

 but the course is so much more than just the act of drawing itself. it’s about learning to accept your way of drawing. and to accept that it takes time and practice to become good at anything.
i think i’m getting it. i am actually satisfied with what i’m drawing. it looks like a kindergartener did it, but i take ownership of that and i accept that that’s the way I draw. For now.

i hope with time and practice i’ll get better. but at least i know i can draw something that is recognizable.  it is recognizable, isn’t it? lol
