i told a few of you that i would be drawing all of the pretty houses in ditmas park for this blog and then mail you the hard copies. oh it’s just a little something!, she said. nothing fancy!, she said. but honestly having attempted 3 (and purchased $100 worth of framing supplies for my christmas gifts) i feel i will not be doing it any more until i fix the part of my brain that can do artsy things again. because the drawings aren’t great tbh. tbh also, i hate colored pencils. so little yield per stroke – so many awkward lines lent – the misery of textures.
as it appears i’ve slipped into the saga of my many failings again i’m going to stop here… going to try to embrace a style of writing that is not self-deprecating and prescriptive! would elizabeth warren hate on her sweet little house drawings and colored pencils? i don’t think so.
