Episode #46: Sketching Love And Hope

Hi again! It’s Charlie O’Shields, back with another episode of Sketching Stuff! The current events we’re facing have been very stressful and the world is suddenly a very different place than the one we knew just weeks ago. I hope everyone out there is staying healthy and safe during these times. We’re living in a moment when uncertainty abounds and that often brings a lot of anxiety. So I thought I would assemble a little collection of stories all about love and hope.

As many of you know, I’m a devout optimist. I believe that bad things will eventually pass, and that together, we can make a brighter future. And, as artists, we have the power to make things that make people smile and bring lots of joy, even during stressful times. I’ve always loved the healing properties of art, but it’s more important now more than ever. Both the act of making art and the act of sharing it with the world creates so much happiness. While many of us find ourselves at home more these days, I hope you’ll make time to sketch and paint. Or, indeed, to indulge in whatever creative hobby you enjoy most! These are exceptional times, but we can all get through them together, while sketching love and hope.

    Another fantastic podcast, Charlie! I’ve enjoying listening while curled up with a nice cup of ice-wine tea and a postcard to paint upon.

    Thank you, Charlie. For me, the pearl in all this is having my hubby home all day for weeks. He normally works long hours under a lot of stress, and I’m always wishing we had time together. Now we do.
    Because we can’t do the outdoor things we normally would, he’s channeling his creativity into bread baking 😄
