Super tired today.  We had guests who arrived late last night, when
I got home from teaching my night class.  They stayed over
because an electrical mistake near our guests apartment building,
resulted in an explosion and fire.  And now power or AC
in the building.All fixed now. 

Here is a journal drawing I did of a Botticelli painting of 
Simonetta Vespucci.

More tomorrow.  For now, tired and taking a break.

Have a loving your life day.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

Those Renaissance artists were amazing. And I can't imagine the work of
getting your hair fixed with pearls and cloth and braids and infinitely
complicated designs.
