There Is Value in What You Love

Updated: Sep 11, 2023

Just because something comes easily to you doesn't mean it doesn't have any value.

This is a lesson that took me years to learn.

As a kid I could draw from memory -- all the lines, the gestures, the expressions on people's faces flowed out from my pen. Without even doing a rough draft.

I only began to realize people loved my drawings when I saw some of my drawings from the '70s posted on Facebook. It was a great feeling.

I started to draw again, but it'd been so long, I lost my chops. That's when I realized that Not Everyone Can Draw. #PracticeMakesPerfect

Here's a birthday card I made for my dad back in the day. I guess I've been creating mementos for people since the very first day I picked up a pen. :0)
