Hitting the doldrums


It's just one of those times, you know? One of those times where nothing in particular is wrong, but nothing feels quite right either. I feel like a ship with no wind in the sails.

I've been trying to branch out lately and draw things other than pencil portraits. People often think that, since I can draw portraits well, I should be able to draw anything in any medium. But art takes place both in your head and in your hands, and when it comes to watercolors and such, my hands have no idea what they're doing. The art comes out looking amateurish and crappy. I know it's because I just need more practice in those areas, but it's frustrating nonetheless.

Maybe it's just the mid-winter blahs.

Maybe it's because this is the first year Mr. Drawworm and I actually have to pay taxes. I crunched the numbers this evening, and...


I mean seriously. Hello adult world, you are a harsh and cruel place. Help me out here, fellow adults who read this blog. What do you do during times like this? Probably take up drinking, right? I think I have some cream soda in the fridge. Will that work?


  1. Cream soda in the fridge will totally work!! Go for it!! Or if your weather is not crazy taking a walk outside with your cream soda works as well.
    I hope you feel better soon! I am up at mid-night writing here because I can't sleep. I know how you feel and I don't even have any soda in my fridge. So I hope we both feel better. And I hope you don't think who is this crazy person up late at night writing a book long comment on my blog :)

  2. The sad part- one of 'em, anyway- is that the proposed federal budget for next year spends 35% more than it receives in revenue. So, one could say your taxes are actually 35% too low. Not to worry, Uncle Sam will just borrow the money, and not-too-distant future generations will wonder why their parents left them far, far less than nothing. There, did that cheer you up?

  3. Oh...I know this feeling all to well. Felt it this weekend. The good thing is it too will pass.... Hang in there!


Thank you for leaving a comment! I read every single one!
