six years ago


Six years ago today, I started drawing every day to see what I could learn - about drawing, and about sitting still to look at the things around me. After 28 days, I began posting the daily drawings here, and I've been doing that ever since. Odd to realize that more than a tenth of my life has been chronicled this way, in gestures and small moments. I'm grateful to be part of a larger community - grateful for those who visit quietly and those who comment, for those I know well in my daily life and for those I've gotten to know online.  Thank you all. 


Elizabeth, Congrats on six years of drawing and blogging your drawings. I love the work, keep it up.

Congratulations! I love your blog!

Your blog is a quiet but vital part of each morning's wake up the muse routine. It's been my experience that the best days are composed of "gestures and small moments." Happy blogiversary!

Hooray! Congratulations!
