I've decided not to do another entry showing progress in 2005. The year is running out of days and I've got my Sketchbook Photo Album at left, with sketches listed from newest to oldest, for anyone who wants to do a quick perusal. Instead, I tried to pick the sketches that have meant most to me. Not the 'best' ones (I'm not the one to choose those, I don't think) nor the ones that were apparently most popular.
Chuck said he could tell I enjoyed doing this one and he was right. It was a lovely Sunday breakfast prepared by my husband.
I'd never been much interested in drawing architecture and wasn't good at it, but with these, I felt I'd broken a barrier. It helps that they were made in two of my favorite places in the world.
Added later: HOW could I have forgotten the Coney Island bees, which, while visiting witty and wonderful Amanda, were so much fun to draw ? We sat in her car with the heat on (sorry, Greenpeace), in the bitter cold, with two ferocious Rottweilers looking on hungrily, and drew away happily together. A real 2005 highlight in art AND friendship.
