Last time, I told you about my hibernation habits (otherwise known as doing too much for too long, till the body says stop.)

 

Well, one way I stop is to draw.

Yes, I know – that is also “work”. I am paid (by my extremely lovely customers) to draw. But it doesn’t feel like work.

 

More importantly – I have to sit still(ish) while I do it.   And I need to concentrate on what I am doing.  As a resuly, my mind focuses on that one thing.

 

It may be a penguin, a dog, a bear or a toadstool. But at that moment, I am focussed completely on that one thing.

 

It’s my time. All the conflicting voices are shut down – there is no room for them.

 

I can get completely immersed in the work – I will sometimes forget to go cook tea (my poor long suffering husband can testify to that) – but that just shows how much I am enjoying it.

 

To me – it’s like a meditation – mindfulness. (I do practice mindfulness meditation too). It forces me to slow down.

 

Without my drawing, my world would be in a constant spin – a massive merry-go-round with no stop button.

 

So – I want to say thank you! Thank you for following me, liking my work – buying my work. It has encouraged me to keep going – and has undoubtedly been good for me too!

 

And I love that someone, somewhere out there, smiles when they see one of my pictures 🙂

 

OK then – I am off to paint some toadstools
