Drawing and being engaged in creative activities gives hope, spurs productivity, and elevates mental alertness. Every time I work on a new art piece I find this to be the case. So, if this is true, why am I not drawing more? That is a great question. I guess I am just too lazy to pick up my pencil. No, really, life just gets super busy sometimes. When I do have time to become absorbed in a new art piece it is a great treat.
Working on this portrait for my niece was a refreshing break that seemed to come at the right time. Usually I need to give myself permission to relax and draw, so when I have a commission to work on it allows me to ease up on my self-imposed obligations and duties. After all, immersing myself into a creative space enables me to be more productive.

Thank you, Karly. I had a lot of fun reliving the past.
Now on to the next commission.
