Weekly Photo Challenge: Simple. I did not take art in elementary school. Art class was a special treat on Friday afternoons in my early elementary years. But art time also meant the best reader in the class had the joyous privilege of going to the principal’s office to read aloud to her. That was me—and I loved to do that. When I got to high school we had to take something in the fine arts. I took drama and speech. I loved it.
In college I took speech, piano, art history. No drawing, sculpture, painting or photography for me. I was convinced I couldn’t do those things. But a few years ago I took a drawing class. just for the heck of it. We drew with charcoal on newsprint paper. I loved it. I am posting a photo I took of a simple still life. It was one single Rubrim lily. Here it is :-), I also have posted a still life of a single flowering bush stem in a vase. They are both so simple. Drawing actually reduced my stress. Once I took photos of the sketches I could believe that they were as good as I thought they were. Oh no, I am not saying I am museum or gallery worthy. Rather–I was happy that I could learn as much as I did!
