Art & Whimsy by Nancy Lemon Carney

Be the Tortoise




Sometimes it is preferable to be the tortoise; slowing down to enjoy the view of life now, rather than dashing through it like a hare.  That is why I draw.  The action of drawing really causes me to slow down, and I am usually calmer after doing so.  Now that I’m really looking at this piece, that fellow looks a bit like E.T., doesn’t he?

From my sketchbook, slowly learning and playing more in Photoshop.  I hope wherever you are, you have time to slow down and enjoy the moment.

I draw and paint and Photoshop. (Is that now a verb and a noun?) Also, I swim and walk dogs and do yoga. Posting will be Tuesdays and Thursdays. Thanks for looking!
