practice every day

at one point in my twenties I drew fluidly -these very detailed pen and ink drawings, I used to earn a small bit of extra $ illustrating biology majors papers for them in college...and then I don't know what happened for a long time creating art was not a focus. I worked for years as a florist so I had to be creative all day and I worked with color - it was enough for me...but I lost the drawing ability.
Like playing piano you have to do it everyday, so I've been trying. I love pattern and color so one of my favorite exercises is to clip fabrics I like out of our million home decor magazines and then doodle them. Doodling sounds so much more fun and less intimidating than practicing drawing...
