Tonight was a teaching night.  I started experimenting with a sketch
I found that needed work today.  I wanted to see what would improve
it.  Sometimes when life events get in the way, or bigger art projects, 
sketches get left behind -- which can be the whole point of 

Today I thought -- let's change this one.  Always fascinating because if
a few years have gone by, you aren't the same person as the artist
who drew it in the first place.  We change so quickly.
This is the result.  It has got more punch, and that's good. I'll
fold it in half and make it into a card for my husband. Perfect.

Now on to something special.

Have a loving your life day.
