Pencil Sketches

I have been trying to draw or paint every day this year, if only for a few minutes. I've managed it probably 90% of days so far. Tbese are a few sketches done with mechanical pencil. The 1st one has some watercolor and gel pen over top.

The quotes are:
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
--Leonard Cohen

“Solitude is the soil in which genius is planted, creativity grows, and legends bloom; faith in oneself is the rain that cultivates a hero to endure the storm, and bare the genesis of a new world, a new forest.”
― Mike Norton

The last one says "things which enclose me" which is a reference to an EE Cummings poem, though not a direct quote.
