The sunny side of life -- Inktober

It was another beautiful day today, and this
portrait based on one of my father's super
photographs goes along with that.

I'm hoping that our garden flowers will make it
through another chilly night.  The anemones are
absolutely magnificent and it will be a definitie
loss of beauty when they're gone.

I am a fan of Inktober whether I'm doing it
properly or not, because I continue to work
on a bigger piece and it's still not finished.
To be able to show you something new makes
me feel wonderful.

It is a very fast paced world now, and the
time and care that goes into more painstaking
work doesn't fit the model of immediacy.
But drawing does, and I am delighted that
it does.

Have an enjoying all that you do day.
