I stumbled upon a blog...She is an Indian Housewife, a talented one. I saw her latest post. It was a beautiful painting of a women from the country side. It reminded me of my school days, when I used to struggle to draw a decent piece and get through. Drawing was a subject, of a 100 marks, till class 8.
I didn't really enjoy it that time, in fact I really hated it...May be because I was always given a 'B' or a 'C' for my best efforts.
But after seeing this fellow blogger drawing and painting as a hobby, enjoying it fully and sharing it on the blog...I really had to change my view about 'Drawing'. Its not so bad after all.
I decided I would start drawing too..again.... After a week I read her blog, today I opened my drawing book from Class 8. I have preserved it since last 10 years. It contains some of my best works as a kid back then. And now I realize how good I was actually.
I shouldn't have judged my skills on the basis of grades I got...I shouldn't have underestimated myself..
Now I wish to start from scratch. For it has been ten years I drew something seriously...No, I'm not a fancy painter...I never was...I was good at expression myself in the pictures I drew, and now I think I did it pretty well...
I'm sharing a few drawings that I drew a decade ago in school...

These are the few ones I like the most. I will start drawing again...I will get all the material required.. drawing sheets, pain brushes, paint markers, paint pens, poster color bottles and all...I'm waiting eagerly for tomorrow!
