therapy

(click image for larger view)

this has been a rough week for me - i had surgery at the beginning of the week to determine why i've been having extremely severe pain for the past four months.  I was diagnosed with endometriosis.

as part of my recovery, i have found drawing to be a huge form of therapy.  i spent two days working on this drawing and i'm really pleased with the results.

i had drawn this house before, but in pencil first and then went in with ink and paint.  there's a huge difference between the two - the first one is tight and stuffy whereas this one is free, expressive and fearless; maybe the narcotics had a hand in that?

i'm loving the momentum i'm creating in my sketchbook.  for once in four years, i've been sticking to it, mistakes and all, and moving onto the next page and it's the greatest feeling!!

taking the sketchbook skool course couldn't have happened at a better time.

  1. So sorry you're dealing with endometriosis. My cousins had it and I know they went through so much pain. I hope you feel better soon although I think endometriosis is not something that goes away. :( I'm loving your sketchbooks too...working in pen is definitely more freeing and expressive.
