A Sneek Peek into my sketchy life – drawing

 You’ve not heard from me for a while.  It’s not that I’ve forgotten YOU it’s just that I’ve had nothing inspiring me and for those of you who have followed my blog for a long time know it’s ultimately ALL ABOUT ME.

Yesterday I started a summer art class – life drawing. Drawing still-lifes and such (you know the kind where the instructor wants you to draw a block of wood, a vase with an artificial flower and a porcelain doll who stares straight ahead with malice in her eye) just isn’t my “thing”.  I’ve got nothing against still-lifes mind you (my life has been still on more than one occasion) but I prefer real flesh.

Here’s my first foray into real flesh since my one life drawing class in 1966.  I was pleased . . . with the drawings, of course.

  1. Does the timing of this new class also conflict with the writers’ group meetings? Hope not. We miss you and your wit.
