i have always been able to draw and paint, ever since i was a little girl. at the time i did not appreciate how easy it came to me. i used to put my studies in front, i had to study to get good grades and go to a good college.
well i studied like a good little girl. got my A's and went to medical school. i never had time for hobbies. six years later i graduated and then finished my internship. after that i worked for 8 months as a resident before i got married. all that time and i never drew or painted a thing, never had time.
well when i got married and then got pregnant a few monthes later, i decided to stay home and take care of my baby. at the begining i was busy with the baby, but when he grew up a bit i started to have more free time on my hands. i thought why don't i go back to painting, i used to love to do it. it used to come so easily to me.
well guess what, it isn't that easy. i painted a picture of sea side cliffs with a small sea side town in the distance. it was nice, i got it from a picture in a magazine. but that wasn't my problem.... my imagination seems to have run dry! i used to be able to draw things easily, have good ideas . now i just sit and stare at that blank peace of paper for hours. it's depressing!
where oh where has my imagination gone.....
