Jinxed

Crabbin'

After my last post, though I really didn't mean to brag or gloat, I seem to have jinxed myself and forgotten everything I thought I ever knew about painting. Actually, drawing to be more specific. I've attempted to paint almost every day this week but couldn't draw a stick figure. Much less anything I'd dare show you. Jinxed.
I read somewhere that the great artist/teacher Quang Ho says, throughout all the classes and workshops he has taught, the number one problem plaguing art students is drawing. And the number two problem? Also drawing. So, it's back to the sketchbook I go, happily I must say. It's comforting.

Mitzi, oh no, I have to learn to draw? : ) I love Crabbin, this is so bright and full of energy. Great work!

ain't it the truth!
I won't post anything that is really bad. I'd rather not post.
