Crossroads




I found this in a box of my old drawings. I don't think I consciously drew it as a TG image but in hindsight I wonder what was going on my head at the time.

 I used to draw all the time. I stopped about five years ago for no apparent reason and I've hardly put pen to paper since.

Perhaps its time Susie developed a hobby that doesn't involve so much constant self-examination and doesn't take up quite so much storage space.










 
I also found this in the same box. There was probably more than a little "I wish" going on when I drew it.

  1. Wow Susie, how can you not exercise such talent? If I could draw even half as well as you, I should not be able to stop. Do keep enjoying this wonderful gift and delighting others in the process.

    1. (blushes) Thank you, Linda
      L is always nagging me to start drawing again. I should. I used to do drawings and cartoons for small press magazines, but it got to a point where trying to meet deadlines started to become more of a chore than a hobby.

    1. Thank you Rhonda. I've loaded those, and a few others into my Tumblr. There's a new link to this in the sidebar.

  3. Susie you have a wonderful talent! As Linda remarked you should use it. I know one is ones worse critic (with me it’s my music) but listen to L and the rest of us and pick up that pencil and draw!
    Maybe you could draw for us, adding now and then a sketch to your posts. I have my Celtic letters, you a drawing / cartoon. I can understand the pressure bit, we don’t want to ‘make’ you draw, just edge you on a little.. ;-)

  4. Music is my other lost hobby to, one I really need to get back to.
    I have added a few more drawings to Susie's Tumblr which is linked from the 'Pictures and drawings' link in the sidebar (though I don't like the way Tumblr automatically resizes everything.) I will post some more when I have time.
    One of my art books by Jim Fitzpatrick .has some nice celtic knotwork.

    1. Yes, the book of conquests, I followed your link and saw that my first edition (softcover) is worth $90! I bought it for £4.25 in 1978, how time flies! I have dabbed in drawing, mainly technical. In the last years I've turned to Celtic art and as you may have guessed I love knots! Also when time permits I create Celtic jewellery.
      Not sure if you can play with the code on Tumbir to resize your pics. I would open an account with DeviantArt and put your pictures there, a more fitting site for your works.
      Also I would start again to tinkle the ivories, nothing beats DIY music. But remember not all at once, we still want you blogging!

  5. To echo what others have said, you've quite a talent there! (hello, understatement :-) ). I write (NB: this comment isn't about me), and I think I get why you might have stopped. Some times, that's just what happens. Your source, or drive - whatever a person calls it - goes on holiday. Maybe, it stays away, but then again, you can 'get back on the horse' and just try. I, for one, would be interested to see some new drawings.

    1. Probably some 'new' older ones will go up first while I try to get my drawing hand back in gear. But then some new ones, promise.

  6. very well drawn Susie. What better place to put down our dreams and not have them affect our daily lives in a concrete way.
