Flowers in a Vase and Other Drawings

When I was 12 until when I was 13 or 14, I used to draw inanimate objects and landscapes. I'm not really good at it, so I would watch my classmates who were gifted with this talent draw and do as they did. And then, as I got older and got busier with school and other things, this interest got buried under my other interests.

I'm not a frustrated artist. In this entry, I would like to share with you some of my drawings which were part of my attempts to be a well-rounded person. Here they are:

(This drawing is dated Feb. 23-24, 2001. I used Faber Castell colored pencils.)

(I also used Faber Castell colored pencils in this one. I wasn't able to put the date, but I know I made this in 2001 also.)

(Unlike the previous two, I used Pentel oil pastels in this one. I loved how oil pastels stained my hand, and I loved how easily they glided on paper as I color.)

(Flowers in a Vase. This is my favorite among the four. Like the first two drawings, I also used Faber Castell colored pencils in this one.)

So there - a peek into my attempt to enter the world of visual arts. Good thing I managed to keep them, so even if I don't draw anymore, I can just take them out and think that once upon a time, I thought of myself as a gifted child that I could do almost anything. Hahaha!

But these works of mine also show me that if I was able to draw things like those before, then I could probably draw again. I just have to equip myself with my colored pencils and oil pastels and come up with something again. :)
