Spring!

IMG_5551

Spring is finally here, and what better way to enjoy it than by being outdoors? I did just that a couple of days ago – took a long walk, sipped an iced beverage, and then sketched while sitting on a park bench. Doesn’t get any better than that! This is seriously one of my favorite times of the year. So long winter – hello warm weather. 🙂

I took my sketchbook with me and drew a flower…I prefer focusing on up-close, individual still life objects rather than a full-scale drawing. I think because I love paying attention to detail and capturing shadows and highlights, and essentially just drawing exactly what I see.

I hope to fill up this handy little sketchbook with colorful sketches like this one. I get in this peaceful frame of mind whenever I submerge myself in drawing, and I love it.

Spring, in my opinion, is a time for personal and spiritual growth that coincides with the changing of seasons. I feel like my mood really lifts at this time of year and I have an extra spring in my step, and my creativity flows easier. I hope you all are able to feel this way as well, and happiness flows with ease into your life!

Happy Wednesday!
