Last Spring I was working on a drawing on my porch and a quote I had read recently tumbled around in my head:
“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” -unknown.
As I was following the line on the paper and thinking about this quote, I suddenly realized that it was calling me to start a project. I would practice the ritual of drawing, every day if possible. I would give them away.
I feel so much gratitude to this project. It has helped me find the focus and motivation to draw more often. My pen feels freer on the paper and the meditative process of drawing brings me calmness. As of today I have made 128 drawings, which is pretty awesome considering when I first hatched the idea I was proud to reach drawing number 10.
Please join me to celebrate the culmination of this project by taking a drawing. The project is complete when they all find good homes.
