Line Drawings (9/4/12 and 9/6/12)

Do you ever feel like you have just GOT to draw or paint's like there's an inner urge to be creative in some you're all pumped up and it just takes drawing or some form of creativity to soothe your inner soul.  Well, that's how I've been feeling recently.  For a year, I was sick while undergoing chemo and radiation for breast cancer...but now I've completed my treatment and I'm feeling so much better.  Now I've been trying to get "back in the swing of life" and I've really been feeling that "creative urge.  Here are a couple of drawings that followed the doodles that I started on.

It's been a long year...

It's been a while since I've posted to my blog.  Life sometimes gets hectic.  For the past year, I've been undergoing treatment for breast cancer.  Just recently finished chemo and radiation.  I'm feeling lots better and I'm trying to get back in the "swing of things".  I've been doodling and drawing...playing music again on my dulcimer...and now I'm going to learn to play the ukelele.  

Here's a couple of doodles that I've worked on to try to get back into my drawing.  The first one is truly a doodle that started with no preconceived idea...just lines.  I kept working around the center shape concentrating on pattern.  The next one was started with a shape that began to look like a flower shape, so I continued with leaf shapes.  At first, I was not pleased with this one until I began to add some darker lines for contrast.  These doodles are good to keep my fingers busy while I'm watching a TV show...especially one that my husband is watching that I'm not really interested in.
