Drawing is one of the first skills children pick up and one of their first experiences in acceptance and recognition. Instantly the refrigerator door becomes their gallery - a place to show off their latest masterpiece as new pieces are added daily. It's as if the refrigerator was created just for that purpose.As an adult, for those of us who continued to explore our creative side, the desire for acceptance and recognition never leaves us.I learned early in my childhood I could get the attention and acceptance I needed just by holding a pencil and letting it work its magic on paper. And of course, when people would ask me how I did that, I'd simply say, "It's all in the pencil". Which really is pretty much the truth. Without the right tool your drawing would be dull and flat - no life to it, no matter how much you wished you could do better.
