The Fifty Cent Tour

Ya gotta start somewhere....

This is my first entry for "Creative Tuesday" hosted by Hot Toast and Jam.
The theme is "Pure Imagination"...
All entries had to be either drawn or put together in collage form.
No writing....so that means no poetry for you, Rene. Ack!
I was a little reluctant to enter because...well, what do I know from drawing?
I had a bit of trouble just starting the thing, as I wanted to come up with a drawing that would complement my skill level, ( absolute doodlin' beginner), yet still get the point across without being too lame.
So I began to think "inside of the box"...

And sooo...she said cringing and closing her eyes


Thanks Mr. Toast for ever so slightly nudging me to just have fun and submit something.
Me draw pretty one day :)

I invite you all to join Creative Tuesday at Hot Toast and Jam, click the link at the top of the page for details.
Just have fun....
Peace ~ Rene

    --Heehee. Love that. This is so clever Rene. you should pat your self on the back. I have to laugh how you managed to add some words in here anyway, which is fine. I think that motto is completely apropos actually.

    You know I am always amazed how people see themselves so far short of their doodlin' skills. We all have to start somewhere and I've watch all of us grow along the way. you already have a great start. Keep it up, check back on the montage sometime tomorrow and sing up for the next theme. Hmmm...what will it be? :)

    Ok, posting this to my sidebar now. Thanks again! :)

  5. What a fine job, Rene! It has everything: art, hope, humility, cleverness, ingenuity. What more could you ask for?

  6. Welcome Rene to CT. I can't draw a lick. I paint with acrylics and watercolors. I bet you could do anything if you get into the spirit of just having fun. I have done somethings that surprised myself. Great job.
