It takes COURAGE

Drawing in itself is a BRAVE act …

Basically, you are putting a little bit of your soul and how you see the world on paper

You are making a commitment each time you do this that is why I think it is so scary.  I always feel rather naked when I draw,  like I am exposing my raw underbelly.

But the KEY is to DO IT ANYWAY

You know that ubiquitous lyric … “Dance like no one is watching”?

Well, draw like no one will ever see … draw with ABANDON

Egon Schiele one of my favorite artists drew like this.  His work is raw, emotional, edgy, controversial, and honest.  I don’t think you see any pretense when you look at his work.  It may not be “pretty” but it is real.  He didn’t make any excuses – that is evident on the page.

Today –

BE BRAVE

BE COURAGEOUS

BE YOURSELF

and

DRAW
