This afternoon I was a bit tired from the business side of my business.
There’s just so much to think about all the time,
so many things to do and learn,
so many choices to make.
So I put aside my business’s business
and sat down for a little sketch.
And guess what?
This little witch came to visit me…

It’s so relaxing to just dip a pen into some ink
and let the tip squiggle on paper to the rhythm of some music.
From those lines so often something comes to life on paper so easily.
It’s exciting and relaxing at the same time.
Then to softly stroke the ink drawing with some watercolour
and see how the colours flow and mix…
For me this is just the best way to my mojo back.
Sometimes people say all your drawings have meaning,
that they all mean something.
If that’s true, I must believe in witches…
in kind ones, though… 😉
