EDM Challenge # 3 - Draw a purse, wallet or bag


My Wallet - A5 sketchbook - © Serena Lewis

Yesterday, I decided to get another EDM challenge under my belt. I had hoped to also get this week's (#118) challenge done but I ended up with a horrific migraine and I'm still dealing with the fall-out from that. Hopefully, I'll get the chance over the weekend. :)

We got the news a couple of days ago that our landlord is not renewing our lease after 4½ years so this means having to find another rental home in the next three months. In the current real estate market, rentals are highly priced and quite scarce so it is not going to be easy. I'm trying to keep a positive frame of mind despite the fact that the stress is what probably brought on my migraine yesterday. It will be sad to leave this house as, we have lived here twice, for just over four years each time so the kids have kinda grown up here too. :(

    Thanks for your comment too, Deborah. I'm really not looking forward to moving again but it's not like I have a choice so I will try to think positive and look on it as a new chapter in my life. :)

  14. Great drawing - I could not do that well, even upside down (damned scientifically trained left brain!)!

    "the stress is what probably brought on my migraine yesterday."

    I was about to suggest that. I get migraines as well.
