7 years ago today

I did my first EDM challenge and have been drawn ever since.

I didn't realize today was the anniversary until I read the first page of a old sketchbook I grabbed off the shelf for reference. 

Sketching has taken me to 4 countries  and has made my life richer. 

I am so grateful for this gift and for all of you out there who encouraged me at the start and who continue too. 

I don't comment as often as I used to or want to but i wanted to thank you, It was your support that kept me posting and sharing. 

I hope to be posting for many many more.

I can relate to your blog post in so many way and you have phrased it all so well. My online art journey is just over 5 years, and also started with Everyday Matters. It took me to Barcelona with Urban sketchers and is so much a part of my life as well. I also am finding it hard to maintain communication on postings on flickr and blogs and facebook. I do read your blog and I look forward to your future posts
