You know, I'm seeing marked improvement in your sketches! That's how I taught myself....drew every day, working from photos. It's such a joy, too!

Am in India! Bright eyed, defs. Bushy tail dragging a bit this morning between my swollen ankles. Love the food, but the salt is killing me.

Ohhhhh... I love the young Maggie Smith portrait!! I need to try drawing again. My first roommate and I used to entertain ourselves nightly with drawing. Jackson Browne, Cat Stevens and Billy Joel kept us company :-)

You are getting very good at this sketching business Mary Ann, Very good. I do adore Maggie Smith. I was wondering whose faces were gonna appear on the screen. Utterly delightful and then some. Off to see what Carol has in store.

Wonderful portraits. I was wondering whether people posed for you, as I had not scrolled down at first glance... But then I saw your models and you captured them very well.
Well done you! The wars become you...

Hard to go wrong with Maggie Smith! The portraits are coming along well. A great project, it will be interesting to see how they're looking several months from now.

Beautiful MAM. - glad to hear you are still relishing your freedom. Made your Meyer lemon marmalade the other day - such a shot of sunshine on a grey day. Thank you.

You know that drawing can keep you from losing your mind when the rain is pouring into your kitchen through your light fixture? Well, keep that in mind should you ever be in that position. I think that I might draw the people that you and Carol draw, or invite MY sister to exchange subjects with me. My mental health is already improving just thinking about it. Now if the rain will just stop so they can get the new roof on.

I just found the most wonderful book and I think you would enjoy it: The Collier Campbell Archive by Emma Shackleton.
This is the archive of a pair of sisters who made painted designs for fabric, many inspired by Matisse. It's an amazingly huge book full of color prints of painted patterns. It reminded me of your latest visual journal.

Very much enjoying the sketches - there is a wonderful sense in your drawing of what you 'see' not so much see right there, but what your impression is of what you see about the person - their quirkiness and personality. Courageous and well expressed, your drawings.
So i notice in the 'great blog redecoration scheme' that you have 'shop' on the top bar, where one can get the labels. (which you know I have) - this is making me most optimistic that you'll be offering MORE things in that shop one day. I like it!
