Happy Bloggerversy to Me!!!!!!

Sunglasses

My blog is a year old.  I started this blog on December 2, 2007.  I can’t believe that I managed to stay committed to this.  This drawing is an old one that I posted back on Dec 17 when I was just getting started.  It’s one of my favorites.

When I look back at my old entries it almost seems like I drew better then, but feel I’ve grown quite a bit as an artist nevertheless.  I think I’ve gotten rid of my phobia about using color (it’s now just a mild anxiety) and I’ve tackled subjects that I never would have had the nerve to draw back then.  I mean, I never thought I would be able to draw a pez dispenser, but I managed. I really feel that I can draw just about anything now.  I don’t mean it as a brag, but I finally feel that I developed the skill.  It’s not just a fluke when a picture turns out and I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.

I want to thank everyone who came by and left a kind word, added me to their blogroll, presented me with an award or just stopped by to check things out.   When you first start a blog you always wonder whether anyone would bother to look, but I have had so many wonderful visitors.  It’s been thrilling and I appreciate it so much.

Well, I intend to keep at it.  I’ll be updating my gallery page soon, maybe even putting an additional one up. Thanks again everyone.

    Thanks a lot everyone! So glad you like the art. I’m all geared up for another fun year!

  12. You say, “I never thought I would be able to draw a pez dispenser, but I managed. I really feel that I can draw just about anything now. ”

    Hold onto that. When you feel you can draw anything, you can. You really can. And still a journey is just beginning.

    Congratulations to you for a fabulous year!
