Despite this obvious lack of artistic flair, the other night, instead of writing in my journal, I felt the overwhelming urge to draw. Over Christmas I bought these great swirled colored pencils at Five Below that I just fell in love with...
|Kra-Z-art Swirled Colored Pencils.|
...and I just LOVE finding an excuse to use them! I knew not to resist the urge, so I found a fresh page in my journal and, ignoring the lines, proceeded to create this:
My ode to warmer weather in the midst of snow.

Sure, it's no Van Gogh. It's not even Andy Warhol. It's mine, and I am proud of it! I love the way the multiple colors shift and change depending on how you hold the tip of each pencil. It makes whatever you draw so much cooler. These colored pencils were definitely a good investment!
