I'm tired. I've just burnt the breakfast muffins I've made for tomorrow morning.

I have been drawing, drawing, drawing this past week. Pictures to come. I think this next portrait will be titled "Wild Thing." We'll see.

My expressive drawing class is going well. My instructor has been quite pleased with my progress. I find drawing from nude models quite a challenge. I often tape the drawings, which are quite massive, (approx. a third to a half the height of my wall) on the walls of our living room and office to self-critique for a couple of days and determine what changes I possibly would make. After the kids get home from school on Wednesdays I find my sticky notes missing from their assigned drawer and pasted over all offensive dangly bits on said drawings. I threatened to hang the whole lot out for their birthday parties coming up in the next few weeks for their friends. They weren't amused.

I'm not contra dangly bits, though I kind of side with them. My Mom had/has a drawing where the artist drew a woman's face sans eyes, just sockets. Kind of like a marble statue.

Growing up it was in the dining area. I used to hang a napkin over the image when I had to face opposite of it while eating.

BTW - let me know when you're ready for a show, eh?
