Finished!




Had to take a break from sorting - oh my gosh - and more sorting and shredding. I even found my cholesterol results from 1999, LOL. I am determined to bring 5 files drawers down to 2.
Sooooo - I am very weary of all that paperwork. I shredded a huge job search file, and wouldn't you know it, the very next day I had need to go back and find some dates that were in it.
As a break, and because I promised to donate a drawing to a "Save the Brilliant Bean" auction, I finished three charcoals. I think I have about 7 paintings to finish, and a pastel painting of a pair of leopard shoes. Well, I'll do it. In process of converting study to studio, hooray.
Can't decide which drawing to donate. I think the apples. I goofed on Nevermore - a composition thing. And if I were to do "House Fire" (the one with the dog) over I would change composition on it too. This was done from a photo in the newspaper of a man whose house had burned down - he lost four of his five dogs, but was able to rescue this one.
Tonight a very small group of artists, including me, went together and hired a model, so we will be doing live drawing! Looking forward to it....
Think the flu is gone - busted, except for tiredness - oh, I am tired after three or four hours. Going to nap now.

So happy to hear that you are feeling better!
I like the 1st one as well, but the story behind 'House Fire`leaves me feeling especially emotional.
I am shredding papers, too. They are great for packing, not so much fun to clean up.

I love the 'Nevermore' drawing. When you brought Nevermore home and you wrote the post about it, I fell in love with the little fella.

What will you do with it if you don't donate it? Would you sell it or give it to someone?
