Overall, this month has been pretty good! I am excited to announce that I have adopted a new favorite pastime – Drawing!
I have always loved art and spent countless hours drawing as a child (no cable television– lol). While in middle school I took art classes as electives but wasn’t really serious about it. In adulthood, I have spent years admiring others’ work while secretly wishing I could tap into my artistic side again. Well, as the saying goes, “There’s nothing to it but to do it.” Smile.
So that’s exactly what I am doing. I am drawing again! Every day I draw something. Anything. The finished product doesn’t have to be perfect, look good or even be recognizable, as long as I am drawing something. My intention is to become a better drawer/artist over the next year with the ultimate goal of one day becoming an renowned artist. Lately, I have been thinking a lot about legacy and what I want to be known for. Well, besides love, kindness, compassion and being an overall good person, I want to be known for my writings, quotes and artwork. If you have been following my blog over the past month, then you have seen some of my work. I am calling my collection Shaun’s Smile because it’s what makes me smile. Feel free to follow me on Twitter: Shaun’s Smile or Instagram: It’s Shaun’s World to view more of my work.
I used the following drawings with my quotes. Enjoy! ~ Shaun
