I am an artist living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. I find inspiration for my work in the books I read, the animals I observe, the music I listen to, and the friends that I make.
Draw Me A Sheep gets its name from a line in my favorite book, The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. When the little prince and the narrator first meet, the little prince, in all his innocence, asks the narrator to draw him a sheep. The narrator, having been convinced by the grown ups long ago to forgo such fanciful pursuits as drawing, explains to the little prince that he cannot draw, but the little prince insists. As the sheep doodles are rejected one by one by his young critic, the exasperated narrator finally draws a box (with air holes, of course) and explains the sheep the little prince asked for is inside. The little prince tells him that is exactly the way he wanted it.
It is my belief that that we are all artists, regardless of what we may have been told by the grown ups. I hope my blog will encourage you to take up a sketchbook and start your own creative journey if you haven’t already, or continue down your path if you have.
