i'm not the only one losing my head.





Finally, I have a pulse! Phew..what a week! Thank you for your patience!

This drawing makes me laugh a little as it is a perfect example of not "planning ahead"...something we are constantly stressing to our students. My poor subject lost part of her head due to lack of planning in my sketchbook.

Eeeek...that's gotta hurt.

Well, OK - but how could you resist concentrating on the boots!

I agree with Karen...the boots were worth losing her head for. ;) So happy to see your sketches (and you!) again.

Oh yeah! You're back! So great to "see you" again. Glad that was your subject that lost her head and not you!
