Dip in the pond

Bond….James Bond….007 is back!


Welcome, James. It’s been a long time. Now finally, here we are. ~Oberhauser~

007….My favorite spy, so of coarse In anticipation of the new James Bond movie, a little more than a month ago I decided to draw a poster style picture.

Last night after seeing the movie ‘Spectre’, the left over excitement was all the incentive I needed to finish the picture.

This is a photo of my finished product.

Persistant Wrecktangles

WrecktanglesI thought my vision of what I wanted to create was clear.  I put my pencil to paper and started to draw rectangles.  However, after a few minutes, I stood back and realized I had a page full of them that lay before me like a big collision.  The wisp of my original vision completely lost in the wreck.

I was stymied.  Completely stopped short.  Usually when I draw, it just flows from me, but this time I was going to have to work for it.  For just a moment I thought of erasing and starting over, but I am a stubborn person, and that drop of doubt evaporated in the heat of determination.

Not giving up. Persistence.  It’s there, we just have to work for it.
