A slow drawing

Crème Brûlée

I came upon a photo today of Steven eating crème brûlée in the café
where we ate lunch every day when we were in Paris last October.
It’s almost impossible to draw crème brûlée in a line drawing, but
the photo was so compelling that I had to try.  At the last minute I
messed up Steven's face, so I'll fix that if I can, and finish the details,
and strengthen the whole thing.

This is it so far. If I can summon the patience it will go farther. And
I’m also working on a very different piece about a café here. The French
would be shocked at how things are done so differently. We had the most
wonderful time in Paris. And our profound gratitude goes out to Moustafa
in this café who treated us like family. 

Have a loving your life day.
