Okay, so Day 28 was about ten days ago. I’ve been hit hard with reality the past few weeks and it’s finally sunk in that my husband is in a war zone. All this stuff all over the internet and TV about that sorry excuse of a film, under the guise of free speech, has Muslims all over the world in an uproar and they have every right to be. We, as Christians, get pissy when people mess with our Messiah, why wouldn’t Muslims? I just can’t handle it. Knowing that my husband could come home from one war and have to leave for another, it’s heartbreaking.
FYI: Just because you can say something, DOESN’T mean you should!
Now that I’m off my soapbox, I’ll get on with the drawings. I haven’t felt much like doing anything the past week or so. To get over that, I dyed my hair pink, or “Pretty Flamingo” to be precise. I’m feeling a little better now.
So, Day 28: Anything you’d like.
This was remarkably simple to do. Given the mood I’ve been in, there is only one thing I would draw. It’s simple to draw and keeps me focused for hours since I double line and fill in the middle. It took me two hours just to do this one. To be fair, the book I’ve been drawing in all month is about 4inches by 6inches. All these drawings are pretty small, but the sketch book fits in my purse.
This is one of those drawings I’ve been doing forever. I was in middle school the first time I remember drawing it. Not sure where the idea came from, but I have dozens of these drawings from over the years. Sometimes I fill in the spaces. Sometimes, I do it large, mostly small. I paint bright colors on canvas and then draw this over top once the paint is dry.
So, here’s what I like to draw:
