Drawing Project - Work in Progress

I thought I'd show you a little detail of the drawing I am working on for class, which is the reason I've been so absent from blogland lately! I've been in the classroom every day drawing on this and I'm still not finished. 
At first, I was daunted by the fact that in order to get a really good drawing, I'd have to go into the classroom almost every evening, but it's turning out to be great fun. It feels like I'm in art camp. Our professor is there to help, we have great conversations and good music playing. And I am learning sooooo much!!

We also had good friends visit us over the weekend and got to do a little sightseeing and lots of good eating! It was hot and humid, but everyone still had a great time.  And Winslow loved having the house full with new friends, including a sweet eight-year-old girl Winslow was totally smitten with... and she with him!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!


  1. Oh my goodness!! I am almost speechless!! This is amazing!! I can just about FEEL the texture of that rope!!! I also admire your patience!! I seem to require more instant gratification these days. I think it's a "time thing". I love to have a huge expanse of time ahead of me for creativity and I rarely get that. Try to squeeze it in when I can!!!

  2. always love seeing your wonderful work...

    looks like you're having a wonderful summer
