Wonderful night with my art group

A super night with my art group tonight.  The model was
wonderful and I got this happy sketch done in about  25
minutes.  One of my friends in the group says that I am
a fast painter, and I said, "No I've been working on a 
painting in my studio for a month and it's not done."

So it was so much fun.  A beret always makes me think
of Paris.  The model was from Eritrea, and she taught me
to say thank you in Tigrinya --"Thank you · የቐንየለይ! (Yekenyeley!)"

I said Yekenyeley so many times, that it may have gone in.
I so love languages. 

Thank you to the wonderful model, and my art group.

Have a loving your life day.
