Why I draw (09-25-08)

My sketchbooks are a source of comfort and pleasure. Whenever I feel bored or unsure about a situation, or when I plain don't feel like being sociable, I know that, in my purse, a world of escape awaits. They are my memory of events I enjoyed, my record of places visited, my outlet for what can't always quite be said in words.


  1. Sounds like sound reasoning to me. Now if I can only get over that "everyone is watching me" idea.

  2. Well, I mean "shy," as not wanting to call attention to myself in the middle of a crowd. I like to observe more than to participate. Of course, people will see me sketching, and they'll come to look at what I am doing...

  3. Wow I feel the same way. that's inspiring. I need to draw more often.
