I used to draw a lot, when I was a kid. I was pretty darn good for a kid, but I eventually stopped drawing. I wasn't enjoying it anymore, and I wasn't getting any better, either.
I've been trying to change the way I think about the creation of art. For so long it's been all about the end process for me, but I'm out of practice and my skill level is too low for me to ever feel pleased with the result of my efforts.
But what if I got back to just enjoying the process?
That's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying not to let the poor quality of my work get me down and get back to enjoying drawing (and painting & sculpture) for the sake of the process. If I don't enjoy it, I'm not going to get any better anyway, right?
I just hope I can muster up the patience soon to do something other than quickie drawings and sketches!
