Have touch drawing, will travel...

It has been just over a year now that I have been touch drawing. I try to draw every day. It has become a wonderful ritual that is inspirational, comforting and challenging. At the end of January I took two weeks holiday and was determined not to miss my daily practice. I covered an old painting board with sticky plastic, cut my tissue in half and threw some tubes of oil paint in the case along with my smallest roller. It didn't weigh much and was discreet enough for the family not to notice… Continue

Hi Ceri,
I have been away from the site for a little while myself. Set up an Art Studio next door to my house, then developed pneumonia & larangitis...still recuperating. The last 4 drawings I uploaded were my attempt to push forward from the illness to get back on track myself. I'm working on it.
It is so wonderful to have you here. This community, the connections, the entire process of TD has become as necessary as the air that I breathe. Even during times when I am away from the site...the process is close at hand. It seems to have become a conduit for everything else in my life....I love it.

Gower Power!!! Well, well, well...syncronicity indeed! I took my board and whilst number one son and number one husband (only have the one - that's enough!) went rock scrambling, I did TD in a lovely sun-lit cottage, quietly humming and sining to myself; very peaceful. Also, so beautiful as I found myself singing "where have you gone?" and at the end of my session an image came of huge eyes looking back at me..."there I am!". So the synchronicity of your mesage was a real gift - how blessed am I!?
How was your weekend with your daughter?
Much love Sarena

Hi Ceri
lovely to hear from you - been enjoying your TD pictures, hidden depths comes to mind...
Health journey on-going - recovering from chronic fatique but other challenging family situations has put me back a bit. Having said that, spending some time re-focusing so that I put me first...one of many lessons to be learnt here!
I've not got my board out for a while - about to go off to the Gower Penninsula as this is half term week in England, and it would be good to take my kit with me. Thanks for sending a message - a much needed nudge!
Hugs Sarena

CERI - WELCOME TO THE TOUCH DRAWING COMMUNITY! I am so glad you are using it in your practice and finding its magentism. Please keep us posted - maybe put some photos of your clients work up, with their permission. There is also a special interest group for Art therpaists using Td in their practices - Please join this. the woman who started it, Katrina Plato, is a close friend and colleague and really wants to develop it - we hope to put together a presentation for the American Art therapy Association conference sometime. Blessings, Deborah
