Reflections about Drawn Lines

Read others reflections about their blogs.
So I'm done with 2018 A2Z Blogging Challenge, What a fast, busy, researching, blogging month. Just as the neighbor mows his grass of weeds, the junior high students yell joy at spring, the passer-by's walk and the cars, Bart, and motorcycles race home from work. What busy noises!  And I'm sitting in the sun knowing I reached my goals for the blog challenged --> how-to-draw lines. My cats are patiently sitting in their chairs, and I have a beautiful view of my garden stretching to the busy street. Rubbing my eyes again wondering why the noise on this warmest of warm days, I feel content.

On reflection, the noise is the celebration of new growth, happy teenagers, busy shoppers, and satisfied workers rushing home to enjoy their evening. The chatter and sounds are the joy I am calmly hearing, watching and observing, once again drawing lines from my garden; the artist is the observer. AND, I do have a course and a book I can publish.

Remember, we are creative. You are the artist that uses pencil, pens, chalks, paints, garden to make lines, the detail, the textures, and values. Lines tell us the viewers what you the artist want us to observer, enjoy, and to be inspired. We see a visual story. Lines take us place. Lines go everywhere. Lines are varied, different. Anything can make a line on any surface.

Also, I did the NaNoWriCamp challenge during April.


Here is the sketchbook created during the A2Z April 2018 challenge about Drawing Lines.

Found your blog a few months after the #AtoZChallenge, but what a great theme! And congrats on finishing BOTH #AtoZChallenge AND #CampNaNoWriMo! Good luck with your new book... it sounds amazing, and I can't wait to see it in print.

Stopping by on the #AtoZChallenge Road Trip. The link you left on the Response Sheet says the page doesn't exist anymore, but I found this reflection. Well done completing the challenge and Camp NaNoWriMo! I've tried to psych myself up for NaNoWriMo a few times. For both the traditional November timeframe and the summer camps, but I've never actually started. I'm always impressed by people who follow through with that daily writing commitment. Best of luck with your book and many more to come!
