EDM 240 Draw a Pencil

I didn't draw a whole pencil... just the tip of my new drawing pencil.... which I drew with my old one, of course.

This drawing and five birthday cards are the most creative I have been in a couple of weeks. I have been trying to get the house cleaned up... especially my craft room and studio (aka the back room). I am one of those people that just can not work in a messy environment. When my daughter and her husband moved out of the basement in May, the basement kind of exploded. Junk everywhere. I finally got her over here to finish cleaning up her stuff only to discover that there was a lot more of it that was mine than hers. Mostly supplies from all those scout encampments I've been teaching at. At least I don't have to supply materials for the encampments this weekend and the following. This weekend is reverse tie dyeing (bleach on color) and the following is regular tie dyeing. Maybe things will stay a little cleaner for a while....

So now that things are cleaned up, what excuse do I have for not getting some artwork done?


  1. If cleaning is what you need to have done before art, then CLEANING RULEZ!! :)
    I really like this close up.... could totally see it in my dream or something, a huge pencil emerging from the ground slowly right before you, with all the majesty around it and choir singing at the background, doves all know what I mean ^^

  2. Very nice work!

  3. Great drawing of your pencil. If you are like me, you'll find another excuse to not do art. I don't quite know why I defeat myself so I am challenging you not to let art slip by you for a silly excuse!

  4. I LOVE it!!!! I want you to make a poster of it for my classroom!!! :-)

  5. Great job, it's right to the "point"!

  6. Great sketch! It's a good thing for me that I don't have to have a clean room to sketch, I'm so naturally unorganized! As long as I stop, once a week, to pick up my desk area, I'm good! (I'm not a messy housekeeper...the kitchen and bathrooms stay clean! But, there is something about my desk that absolutely resists staying organized!)
