More faces please

This gorgeous girl is much more beautiful
than what I could possibly capture in
a quick sketch.  There is a  defiance in
her face I like.  At this point in the
evening I think I was probably
delivering a boring  speech on the
value of higher education as I drew.
Of course I believe what I was
saying, but I'd much rather be
funny than be a pedantic bore. Ah well.

Have a drawing-the-beauty-you-see day.

Barbara, I have been out of touch with the blog world and I have missed all of your recent posts. You have done so many delightful sketches! What a treat to go through them all.

I hope you had a joyous Christmas and felt love all around you.

Peace and joy to you and your wonderful family.

Love,
Nicki
