the perfect sprout
I looked up at the clock and realized it was eight o'clock . I thought it was around two o'clock maybe three o'clock but not eight o'clock! This is what working on the computer does to me. It literally eats time. I have been working all day on a logo design for a Montessori school. I am having the hardest time trying to draw a simple sprout. No problem drawing a complicated honeysuckle or a rose, give me a multilayered peony no problem but try to draw a sprout and it's as if someone asked me to do three back flips in a row, no way can't do it, never could, never will. See it's that way for me, the simple stuff I have to make difficult in order to make it easy. Can anyone relate? I am posting a picture of a platter I made last spring, Sarah my friend, who is starting the Montessori school, owns this piece. I had to post it to remind myself that I really can draw. I just can't draw sprouts. Oh and don't ask me draw anything on a chalkboard in front of a classroom full of school children, can't do that either.
