“We must work every day, whether we feel like it or not; otherwise when it comes time to get out of the way and listen to the work, we will not be able to heed it.” – Madeline L’Engle, Walking on Water

A Daily Practice

I started doing a daily sketch in December of 2018 after reading Samantha Dion Baker’s inspiring book Draw Your Day. My goal was to learn to draw. I hoped that with daily practice, I would improve over time. Whether I’m getting better or not, the viewer would have to judge, but I know that with each new drawing and painting I learn so much.

Here are a some of my favourite sketches from the last few months. I post these daily sketches on Instagram. You can view them HERE.
