So I have all these beautiful pencils, a variety of kinds of pencils. I look at them and wonder just where do I start? I always enjoy watching people arriving on a caravan park. They roll in with their caravan or motor home. The first task is to find what for them, is a suitable pitch. One that gets full sunlight or one that is in partial shade. The more pitches that there are vacant the harder the task becomes. Some people can end up trying four or more before they are happy.
It seems that choice is not always a good thing. On the other hand I saw a really funny thing the other day there. I was walking along a woodland path, coming towards me was a man and woman and their two little dogs. The dogs were fighting over a stick, and it was a very serious battle they were having. The ground was covered with equally sized sticks, but they both, out of all the hundreds both wanted the same one.
So here I am, with all these pencils, all these lovely shades of black, and all these beautiful colours and I do not know where to begin.
I thought about the drawing I had done of the little bridge. Could I maybe do that in colour? Too difficult? I thought of the beautiful drawing sent to me by Barbra and the picture of the little tree by the lake I have brought home with me. Is this possible or again is this too difficult?
I am at a real loss, spoilt for choice and a feeling that no matter where I begin it will lead to the wrong choice.
A fellow blogger, the other day, sent me a message about one of my very early blogs commenting on a vase of blue cornflowers. Maybe I should try and do something like this.
One thing is sure, as another blogger has said to me, I need to stop running and get back to my first real place, ART.
Have any of my blogging friends got any good suggestions to help me?

Oh and Jerry I will try hard to post a few extras but I need also to try and catch up with reading blogs.
