Slow down New Year
as well have been wearing white pumps in January. (Our
tour guide in Siena in December wore white pumps,
black tights, a white ski jacket coat, black cinch belt, and
a black scarf, topped with a grey fake lamb fur hat. She
looked great!) But anyway I get the point and feel it in
my bones. The year is racing away.
Today I began undoing the Christmas greenery, and drew
this little sketch of my niece. She's the bigger girl, and so
beautiful in real life that I never adequately capture her
beauty. Her skin is radiant and transparent at the same
time -- luminous.
Some day I'll get her to come here (She lives in L.A.) and
pose, and then we'll really have a gorgeous painting.
Have a loving-your-family-near-and-far day.
