Day 30: Distracted Sketches

I can draw almost anytime. It’s not the same as when I can get into something, and you can tell the difference. My sketches are, like me, a little scattered and without focus.

Still, it’s pen and paint to paper and I feel better for having done it. 30 days of stay at home. Everyday I remind myself how much of a difference the early lockdown has made in California. Keep Drawing, Keep Staying Home. We’ll get to the other side of this.

    I so like looking at your “staying put” sketches everyday. This visual journaling during the corona crisis is important both as an outlet and practice–and as a record of a significant time in our lives.
    Thank you, Suhita! (I’m from Gainesville, Florida and met you briefly at the Chicago symposium which I attended with Susan Torgerson James.)

  4. Barbara, glad you’re enjoying the sketches. If the Chicago meetup happens this summer, I will be there!

    It’s hard for me to do what you are calling “distracted” sketching… I want to try, though. I don’t need my sketches to be finished and focused, but that seems to be what happens. This was Day 31 for us (or since I started counting… I think we started a few days before that). It’s worth it that we have all stayed home… but it sure is hard, especially now that the weather is so much nicer.
