A man
Line drawing -- black marker on bond
8 1/2 x 11 inches

I have to be a bit mysterious tonight, because I can't show
you the painting I've been working on all day. The
client wants it kept secret, so that's how it's got to
be. After it's delivered I can show you what I've been
up to.

For tonight, I'm giving you another drawing of "the man."
It is unfinished, but I like that incomplete look. It's been
a working weekend. Painting almost 24/7 and we're
having intermittent thunder storms, so I can't continue
to write on the computer. I lost one a few years ago in a
storm -- that makes you edgy. So I unplug my computer and TV
in storms. (Yes I have a surge protector -- yes it was plugged into

I hope you had a lovely weekend. I enjoyed every minute
I was outside (between rain storms) looking at my
poor garden. If things slow down this week, I'll take
care of it.

Have an enjoying-whatever-happens day.

I like the bits you leave out best! You're really good at drawing just the necessary - another good drawing!

Hi Liza,

If I ever have a drawing show I'm flying you over! No wait -- I should have it in France.

Hi Gwen,

Yes the hair is a good thing isn't it.
Although he's just as wonderful without it. Very funny!

Take care,
