The Things That Are Missed

It's been a long time since I put pencil to paper. I can't remember the last time I sat down for the purpose of creating something on a sheet of paper with nothing more than a pencil. I don't remember the last time I returned to simple black and white and shades of grey.

I miss the feel of the pencil in my grip, the way it scratches and glides across the paper. I miss the way that something so beautiful can be created with a few well placed lines and the addition of appropriate tone. Tonality is the secret to creating something worth looking at. I miss the last time I could stand back and look at something that came from the work of my very own hands, and proudly say "I drew that".
