Mountains To Climb
I reluctantly included this drawing today on my other blog. I thought and thought about what I could put there and my mind kept coming back to this one.
Before I go any further let me tell you it is my first ever attempt at producing a painting using only pencils. I did so because I had looked long and hard at the painting done by Barbra of the roots of the tree. I know I have mentioned it often, but it did so impress me.
Enough, for me to want to have an attempt at producing something of my own, and this is it. It is not a great attempt I am aware but it is the first artistic thing I have done in ages. It is maybe just the first step back up the mountain to painting as I did in the past.
Susan was speaking on her blog the other day of painters block. I am not sure what causes it, but I do know what it is.
Showing you this today might just be a new beginning for me, we shall see. So please do not anybody say it is good. it is what it is , a start.
It does fit my other blog though. This is the summit of one of Scotland’s 287 mountains over 3,000 feet high. People in Scotland try to “bag” all 287. A great many of them leave this one till last, it is known as the “Inaccessible Pinnacle”. to climb it alone would be foolhardy if not impossible. It requires roping up and helping one another. This is the theme of my other blog this morning.
It is as it is a drawing done on paper with pencil.
