A runner…in the beginning

While putzing around the house this weekend, I asked my runner husband “What should I sketch next?”.    He said, “I told you to try a runner”.  But you see…every time I find a runner, (well….a female runner), they’re just so skinny.  I can hardly see their legs from the distance of the shot.  I found nothing the least bit inspiring when I did a google search.  Bummer!

It seems I forgot that I had Fitness magazine from last August.  Good thing, too.  Cuz the man spotted a decent runner shot inside. 

I like this shot on a lot of levels:
  • There will be NO FACE to sketch- makes me happy
  • Good Photography- decent lighting and not too many shadows
  • Interesting angle- well, I’ll let you be the judge of that!  Haha

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
