Some drawings from 2005
These are drawings from life, done in 2005, in uninstructed workshops. The first is charcoal, on 18"x19" paper.
The last two are small ink drawings (about 6" square, though they're not square). Often, after drawing more detailed images, I like to take a few minutes and make a smaller, less detailed image. These are a couple of my favorites.
I've been doing a lot of family-related stuff for the past week--all good. Among other things, I was lucky enough to help celebrate the birthday of a very charming 106 year old man (suddenly, I feel quite young) and also, in a separate celebration, to laud a 60 year old marriage in which the couple still behave quite lovingly toward each other (like "newlyweds," though most newlyweds are not so loving and respectful).
