January 16, 2013. I decided to post an old sketch of the Schliengen rathaus. It's been seven months since we moved back to America, and I'm processing some of the changes we have gone through. I'm less inspired to draw my surroundings for one thing. I have a feeling it will be summer break before I actually crank out some city scenes of the Bay area. Even then, I'm wondering if the process will engage me in the same way as it did in Europe. The thing I feel pretty sure about, in regards to drawing, is that I need to somehow keep it going, even if it's only a couple hours a week. Life is definitely full, with home, teaching, new friends, and what-not. But the impetus to draw somehow lingers.
