Behind the scenes -- and a drawing

Sometimes the behind the scenes work for artists is messy, time consuming
and not wildly interesting.  That was today.  I gessoed a large canvas,
in a painstaking way, and am not finished gessoing it (many layers). So I decided
to do a drawing.

I found a sketchbook I rarely use, beautiful quality paper, and opened
it to find this.  "Aha," I said.  Perfect for a day like today filled with the
dull work of prepping a canvas for whatever excitement is to come. 
The drawing is I'm pretty sure of my firstborn. If not, there's another
person in the world with the identical expression.

That's it for today.  Have a loving the creative life Sunday.
