Recently, doodling became a way of letting go. First I made a background. Pick whatever colors I wanted, you say? Okay. I will and did. But then it sat on my desk for two months. I wasn't sure what I wanted it to look like or show or say or ...
You all know what I mean.
Last week lots of things went on at work that were so tragic and overwhelming I had to find a way besides journaling to release some tension, stress and grief. I checked in on my favorite doodle master, Dawn Sokol Devries, via her website (http://www.dblogala.com/) and her books for inspiration. The results of that time are below. Although not as skilled as Dawn, I really enjoyed it. I struggle with the letting go. Give me a blank page to draw on and it remains a blank page. I can copy anything I see (to a certain degree) but original drawings sometimes are a struggle. But I'm very pleased with these doodles so far.
