Today is the last time I want to talk about my migraines.
I'm totally sick of them already in so many ways.. The
huge problem though is that they have created a wall that is
so hard to break through.. Even when I feel ok my brain
still feels like mush. My goal is to figure out how to re access
that happy creative magical place, even if I have down days.
Sometimes it's just about starting that's so hard.. there are just
so many choices. I started reading Annie Lamott's  wonderful
book Bird by Bird. It's about writing and life but I think it
works just as well for art and drawing and painting and ideas
and life. I'm inspired to just go little by little, bird by bird, and
just restart. So here is a bunch of drawings of animals with
whiskers, then I pulled the one that spoke to me the most
and painted her up. The 2 pages are the start of my sketchbook
project 2013.
