Funny how a little thing like a drawing project can teach you about yourself. I believe I’ve already shared that I don’t view myself as artistic. I love beautiful things and have utmost respect for people who can create them, but I’ve always believed my strengths lie elsewhere.
I chose to draw this chair because I didn’t want to tackle the huge shelf of books across from me. Even with the simplicity of the chair, I didn’t believe I could do it with my eyes closed.
I was downright giddy when I opened my eyes and saw what I’d done. I did it. I added the coloring later, but I drew something that actually resembles the chair. It challenged what I believe my capabilities to be. Maybe I can communicate this way. Maybe I can create beauty.
