Or can you?
It's hot and humid here and most extraneous thoughts are just blowing in and out of my head. I had an interesting discussion with a friend the other night though. We wondered (again) why people "can't draw."
Here's one story of why I thought I couldn't draw:
One Halloween, when I was small (4 or 5) my mother asked whether "someone" would make a drawing of a witch on a broomstick. The idea was that she'd have my dad jigsaw it out of wood, put it in the window and backlight it. OOOOO scary ;). I was jumping up and down: "I'll do it, I'll do it."
The job was given to my 14 year old brother. And so it begins. Chipping away at our natural confidence in mark making. I could go on but the real point of the story is that we all have these stories. Lots of them. That's at the base of why we "can't draw."
What's your story? Can you think of one? It's helpful to start writing - pull out your journal and write. See if any memories come up.
