A quick study with friends
several canvasses ahead of time, so that I
could head out to my Tuesday night art group
whenever I felt inspired. I did.
Tonight I had a very little time with my art
group. But the model didn't show up, so
one of the club members graciously offered
to pose. He held the pose expertly, and
perhaps because I know him I dashed down
His face in the actual pose was very
serious, but his kindly nature twinkled from
his eyes. I didn't get time to capture that --
I was more interested in the play of light,
and could soften the chin a bit, if I want to
put more work into it. But I think I've
captured the sweetie pie side of this fellow.
I'm absolutely exhausted in a good and happy
way. So it's time to call it a day.
Have an enjoying-whoever-you-paint day.
