Karen Winters, asked if we find ourselves sketching the same things, things that we like. I gave this some thought and I don't think I am attracted to the same subject. For me it is a matter of time. When I capture a moment in my day, that is when I open my book. It isn't the focus of my day. My finished pieces are what I return to and what I need to be spending the most time on. However, I am not letting any moments of time be wasted. Whatever is in front of me, I draw. In the mornings while at the ice rink I add to sketches, or draw Rebecca's skating bag. The other night in Tony's class I sketched a napkin. Isn't it funny, I can listen better when I am sketching.
As a child I was scolded for sketching on the envelopes that arrived in the mail. Wouldn't it have been nice if I had been provided a stack of paper? My dad worked for a paper company.
