brave me created (a still) life…

Today I made this. It took about an hour. It is the first time in about 5 years or so that I've made a soft pastel drawing.  I was scared that I wouldn't feel drawn (pun intended) to the piece because I was afraid of the blank piece of paper. I have a silk red poppy in a very tiny vase. Looks just like this. I'm going to do a little art everyday. I hope.
