I am doing something though. For one hour a day/four days a week, I'm SLOWLY working my way through some art courses. Three of them concentrate on drawing. So far I'm simply learning what I don't know and how hard it is to do what I thought I did know. (does that make sense?)
Today is Thursday and I'm on page 36 in Carl Purcell's book: Your Artist's Brain. I have to draw a picture of a pear and a can with some dried weeds. I could be at this for a while. sigh.
