I’ve always wanted to be good at drawing.
True I have a BFA in studio art, but at best I’m passable at drawing realistically. I have yearned to work with my hands again… not just doing artwork with my camera or my mouse. Perhaps it’s time to draw on the magic of the universe and learn to draw the magic.
Impulsively I bought this book, How to Draw and Paint Fairyland by Linda Ravenscroft, when I was out and about yesterday. I am apprehensive as well as excited about the gift I just gave myself. Will it sit on the shelf only to be picked up once in a while and put back? Or will I allow it to transform my beliefs about my drawing ability.

I’m joining Becca Givens’ Nurturing Thursday for the first time. Please visit On Dragonfly Wings and Buttercup Tea to find out more about it. As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.
