Great model at my art group

I haven't been to Tuesday night portrait sessions with
my art group for months.  And I missed it so much.
So tonight I was determined, collected all my materials,
grabbed a canvas and went.

The model, Giacamo, was wonderful, and liked what I
was doing.  He said that his thoughtful expression is
exactly the way he'd look if he were near the ocean,
because he loves the sea.

From the minute he sat down to pose, I decided to call
it Captain.  The blue background was already there,
with the ground.  So fun.  Thanks to the DVAC art
group.  Thanks to Sharon By The Way (not her real 
name), who played the best music I've ever listened to there. 
And thanks to my husband for picking me up after an hour.  
We got 'er done.

Have a doing what you love day.
