Drawing for a Drawing


Last night I watched August Rush again, my new favorite movie. After the kids went to bed I felt the creativity flowing out of my fingertips and was inspired to pick up a pencil and draw. It was really enjoyable and this drawing is the end product. I would love to give it away, so let's do a drawing for the drawing. If you are interested just leave a comment. Wednesday night I will put all the names in a bowl, draw a winner, and I will mail the drawing to you. (This is where I get a little nervous and hope there are people actually reading my blog...) The drawing is done in pencil on soft gray paper and is 8 by 81/2 inches. I have wanted to do this for a while and love giving stuff away, so if it works we'll be on to something.

Weird strangers are reading your blog. I peek often because I got to yours from Cassie's blog. (I live in the ward so I'm weird but not so much strange. Your mom even visit teaches me.) I'm being brave coming out of my secret shell to reveal that yes, I read your blog. I'm willing to admit that because the drawing got to me.

Well, what can I say after all that! Who wouldn't want to read your blog?! I'm sure you have a lot more fans than you know.

My dad, whom you re-met in Youngstown earlier this year, still talks about what an amazing family you all are. I have to agree! You guys rock!

Love your work! Thank you!

Wow! I am so impressed with how much you have been blogging lately. I love the drawing and that creativity is flowing out of you. I fell into a little slump, but I am going to be working out of it in the next week or so.

I am so glad to be one of you many fans. 19 posts! That's outrageous!
