Day 53 of the Artistic Spirit Pledge

111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

Day 53: Back to the Drawing Board

My 9-year-old nephew didn’t believe me when I told him that I can’t draw. So, we sat down with his sketch pad and pencils, and we all drew a unicorn. Here’s his:

O's artwork

And here’s mine:

Is it a goat or a unicorn?

After the laughter subsided, we decided to focus on art while I’m here. The pastels didn’t work very well, so we’ll try a different method for coloring in our sketches.  Last night, we searched the internet for “How to draw an elephant” and sketched version number one. The artistic exploration will continue today and tomorrow as we practice time and again until we are all pleased with the final result.


I’ll post the final artwork in a few days!


**I am an Artistic Spirit! For most of my life I’ve used the creative arts as a source of spiritual exploration and healing, even though I didn’t always do so consciously. Sometimes I was the instrument creating the art and other times I was on the receiving end. The connection between art and spirituality is so significant in my life that it’s infused into everything I do. I love music, theatre, television drama series (daytime and primetime), and creative writing and find fulfillment in artistic expression of various sorts: singing, acting, and jewelry design. Throughout the next 58 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
