This must be the most unromantic and uninteresting subject under the sun. Well, one of them anyway. I think that is why I chose this Everyday Matters Challenge 126 – Draw a Sponge. I just needed to draw something that I didn’t care about.
For a whole week I have been going around looking at things and wondering whether or not I could draw them. Now I don’t know why I was doing this since I have proved to myself that generally if I sit down and focus I can draw most things. But for some reason I decided to sit and stew about it. It’s like I get drawing amnesia and suddenly I’m in remedial drawing sitting in the back of the class and staring out the window. Then my inner critic starts chastising me about not drawing. Grrrrrrrr.
Fortunately, the marvelous Sarah gave me the nudge I needed and I am back! Thanks Sarah!
What is this inside of us, this silent observer,
Severe and speechless critic, who can terrorize us,
And urge us on to futile activity,
And in the end, judge us still more severely,
For errors into which his own reproaches drove us?
