iPad Skype drawing
8 x 10 inches

(For a non-techie I thought this was funny -- a
double barreled tech attempt, Skype and iPad in one
fell swoop)It may not be the entire reason for being on the
planet, but I think it's an important one -- and that
is loving people. Rock bottom we need to learn
how to love ourselves first, but then it's family,
friends and so on. This face is the center of
my loving world, my dear one, Steven. He has a great
face, and a great tenderness for me and our sons.
Drawing with the iPad reminds me of the contour
drawing exercise teachers start you on at art
school -- only then you were feeling the face with
your pencil. With the iPad, you are feeling, and
drawing with your finger (you can get a stylus), and
that is cool, because it really is like feeling the face
as you draw.
Have a drawing-the-people-you-love day.
