My brother on a busy day in art land

We are living in interesting times. Today I was looking for material to pack up
a project I just completed, and I found this lovely drawing of my brother, Andrew.

It feels appropriate in a week when I’m thanking the people who help me stay
 happy, positive, and even keep me laughing, to thank my brother.

This portrait was probably done via Skype a few years back. I love how happy
my brother looks, and how easily I got the room, his expression, even the suggestion
of art on the walls in a marker drawing. I was clearly having fun.  And I always
do have fun talking to my brother, even when we argue about nothing.

It’s been a very rewarding, hard-working, week. I appreciate everyone who helped
me enjoy it, and I wish you all a super last day of the work week and wonderful

Stay healthy and stay safe.

The few marks really do convey a great expression on your brothers face and the feeling of the room and space❣️����

Thanks so much Evelyn,

The other day we were trying to figure out where my brother was when I drew this.
I think he was in his house, though we can't decide if he was in the office,
or living room. When it flows, it does. In this drawing it did because I
was having fun. Your drawings always flow. I love looking at them.
