First Post


This is my first post on this blog. I am trying to set up a blog here where I can share drawings and perhaps later, some paintings. It is going to be my "fine arts" blog. I have another one at Freebirdsings.blogspot.com which I use for my beadwork, paperarts, a few personal posts and other fun stuff. I hope you enjoy my journey into drawing and will leave me a comment sometimes. I'll be fixing this blog up a bit but I wanted to jump in and post my first challenge drawing from Every Day Matters , a yahoo group for people who like to draw.

The first challenge was to draw a shoe and this is the one I did. It is in a new sketchbook which will be used only for the challenges. There are currently 177 of them so I have a ways to go to catch up. By then I am hoping to be drawing much more confidently and better!
