it seems to me that I prefer pencil to a pen (someone once said that it's unforgiving tool). Yesterday I was trying to sketch with a pen, it was so difficult. Personally I am amazed by other people's blogs...sketches are so personal and if you ask me...I think that world looks and feels much better, more dellicate and compassionate if you see it through sketchbooks, don't you think so?
Sometimes I am so stressed out and can't see the way out, there are times I think it's the end of the world but then my sketchbook shows me another window to look out through, another door to open. When I look at world through sketchbooks I gain necessary distance and step out for a while from my own closed little room and see a bigger picture. Nothing is as bad as it seems to be, and there is always room for laugh. Because drawing and painting shows the world as I see it, there is no pretending, or posing for someone that I am not. Sketching, drawing, painting - that's the only time I am truly myself and honest with myself. Maybe that's why I find it so difficult and don't really want other people to see it.
Am I so used to pretending?
