Drawing, drawing, drawing...

These days I am starting to feel like my pencils might become fused to my hands. I am drawing pretty much full-time. The perspective landscape is due tomorrow morning and I'll show you a photo of the final drawing then.
The experience of drawing in one of Savannah's busiest parks was quite an experience. None of the quiet meditative quality of drawing in the classroom. Constantly people were looking over my shoulder and giving their input (some of the suggestions were actually really helpful!), dogs stopping by to look me in the eye and say hi, leaves falling on my drawing pad, the wind blowing and tourists asking to take our picture...
Today, I still have fifteen sketches to finish in my sketchbook and a special lecture to go to tonight. All that to say that blogging has been put on the back burner for a little while. Although I am sure that I'll get back into the full joyful energy of it again very soon!

In the meantime, I hope you are all doing wonderfully and are enjoying all your creative endeavors!!


  1. Sounds like you are loving your learning process. Isn't it wonderful to have the energy, time and means to exercise our creative inclinations?

  2. Liebe Silke,

    herzliche Grüße aus Bochum mit wechselhaftem

  3. I've been away from blog land for afew days. But it sounds like your class is keeping you busy and that you are outside enjoying the spring weather while you are drawing. Keep up the good work.

  4. When the creative spirit fires, go with it. Good for you. xox Corrine

  5. Das wird spannend. Darauf freue ich mich.

  6. hello silke, so many of us aren't blogging regularly because life has called us to draw, garden, and sometimes be astonished! but we don't forget one another and we know we'll be back soon enough :^)

    can't wait to see your drawing(s). i would like to fall in love with a pencil. i have a favorite already.

    i KNOW you LOVED people in the park stopping by to gleefully peek at the drawing of silke the artist!
