Day 1815 It’s Saturday

Ashley Should have taken a queue from the chilly monsoon today and stayed home in bed but no I went off to lifemodeling.

The drawing first break. Not going well. Brought a homemade apple pie for a treat and people were lined up for it in the kitchen during break. Along with Freds lattes. Yummm

Second break what’s with those legs. Cut them off cut them off. So I did. Whack whack. One thing good about paper you can always crop it. Hurrah.

Ashley a slip of a thing about 100 lb was challenging.

I do like the lost edges on the right side. And I like her face. And hmm that’s it. Chop chop.

Day 1813 Tam

Tam and her iPad in her happy spot on the porch at Key West where you can listen to the trade winds rattle the tall palms. She would still be there on the porch if she could.

Went to a great show tonight at the Aiken Center for the Arts. George Dawney was showing some of his gorgeous sketches and oil paintings.


As I told him the most beautiful sketches I have seen since the sketches from the Louvre at the High Museum Show a few years ago. George is also on Instagram.
