STRADA Easel 31 Day Challenge

I participated in the STRADA Easel Challenge for the month of January to help me get back into the daily habit of creating. It’s been a long time since I have created on a daily basis for 31 days straight if ever! Some days my drawings were not as great as others, but to produce a drawing a day is insane for me! Even when I taught I didn’t have time to create daily.

Look how beautiful my girls are! If you want to see all my drawings from the STRADA Easel Challege follow me on Facebook and Instagram! I have been wanting to draw my girls for quite some time, but always had an excuse for not getting it done.  I completed 27 drawings from the STRADA Easel Challenge. Although I would like to go back and rework a few drawings, I am very pleased with my portfolio.  My goal is to complete a few more to reach a personal challenge that I have been avoiding for years.

Capturing moments you can’t recreate are priceless. My goal in every portrait I create is to capture the essence of that person. I appreciate all the wonderful comments for the past 31 days and all the likes. My followers kept me going even on days I did’t feel like creating. Most of my drawings were drawn in car line or late at night when my kids had gone to bed.

My children love to see themselves when I have completed my portraits.  Just keep in mind these drawings were completed in a day not working on them for weeks or days at a time.  When I agree to a commissioned drawing it will take me month or longer.  This was just a challenge to get me to produce more artwork and to speed up my drawings.  I can be very slow when I draw.
