Art Group Sketch
16 x 20 inches
Barbara Muir © 2017Be determined. A good motto. I saw in an email that my
art group was meeting tonight, and not again for 6 weeks.
I thought I absolutely must go and paint from the model.
My complicated schedule meant I had an hour and a half
at the most to be there.
So I parked. It was snowing for most of the day today,
but when I hauled my supplies out of the car I stepped
in a 6 inch deep puddle. It was raining like crazy. Slush,
ice, slippery sidewalks. And the normal door into the class
was blocked! Yikes!.
A kind lady from the adjoining library funneled me through
the warmth of the library, and ran down the two flights of
steep stairs to check that the group was there was there.
I saw the stairs and froze. (knees) But the librarian ran up,
grabbed my bags and ran back down. Done. I was in.
The model was lovely a woman with a Masters in acting,
who now teaches private lessons in English to grade school
children in China via Skype. I'll call this rushed. (I
know -- don't answer that question -- but it is a sketch --
maybe 3/4 of an hour, but I don't think so.)
