Tanglescape-Zebra Technical Pen on Hahnemühle Nostalgie Postcard
Yeah, it’s totally different now, drawing these doodles while I eat breakfast. For one thing when I visited Mom at her Assisted Living, I was sitting at a table, talking with people while I doodled, so my attention was divided between talking and drawing. Usually, I drew until Mom was ready to return to her room, so some days I had quite a while to draw and others only a few minutes. So, I drew fast in order to have some sense of completion.
At home, I’m sitting in a recliner, by myself, and I have all the time I want. Mind over matter – the way I approach the drawing is totally different. If it wouldn’t be so expensive and so fattening, I’d go to a coffee shop or restaurant each day. But no use telling myself I’d just have a black coffee.
I’d be lured by the evil items in the display case and all the fancy coffee flavors listed on the board. I mean – in the name of scientific experimentation, I’d be compelled to try them all out. Right?
