For the love of Tuesdays

Tuesdays in my neighbourhood involve a stimulating morning meeting
I look forward to all week.  And to people in the art group I belong to, 
Tuesday night means drawing from a model. I love the morning group
meeting,  and the drawing nights are a treat.  Tonight the model, Ben, 
was a pro -- relaxed enough to hold a pose, plus grill the artists on facts 
about Oscar winning movie titles.  Apparently 13 Oscar winning movie titles 
since the model's birth started with the word  "The." His Oscar themed 
questions made the short time I spent with my art group this evening great fun.  

Have a loving your Tuesday activities day.

Very good! You captured the relaxed pose perfectly, Barbara. He looks as if he’s not even aware of being painted.

Hi Liza,

Thank you so much. I think the model was dreaming up contests for us while he posed.
He'd ask if he could speak, and ask another question about the Oscars, then get right
back in pose.
