When I started this latest immersion in drawing and painting, I was looking for my old self that enjoyed it deeply and at times could do it hour after hour. I had lost that for too long, and was more than ready for the fond memories that came to mind in the early 2000s when I was into illustrating words and verses and not much into images in themselves. So, I took a formal class or two in watercolor, something I had avoided as much as possible before, and discovered happily that I loved the medium. It was less forgiving than I hoped but so what, one just takes that into account when starting. I went back to basics of drawing, planning, composing my work and it kept me on track until I was wet through and through in the new immersion. It has filled the empty spaces in my life and brought me a new love! I owe it so much that I want to return the favor!
