It’s Saturday night, and I want to watch a movie. So this will be a fast blog. My heart goes out to all of the friends who are going through hard times in one way or another. I hope you can take some joy from the beautiful day like the one we had today. And I actually saw a tree in bloom with pink flowers – the start of the exquisite time of spring.

Here’s a drawing I did that is starting to look like part of a series. The inspiration, oddly enough comes from Botticelli.  I am entranced by the way he paints hair. So the hair in these drawings is a combo of inspiration from him, and my own brain. That’s art isn’t it? And I know this looks nothing like the work of  Botticelli. 

I hope you enjoy everything that you can.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

You are so kind. I have a huge Botticelli book that is part of the pile of books I put my computer on when I Zoom.
The hair on the woman on the cover is amazing.

Love your work!
