Yesterday's post talked about the drawing I was planning to do...note the word planning.  I didn't get anything drawn.  I read the section, prepared the material needed and then it was time to head out.

This was the day my celebrity portrait was presented. Most of our area's top political leaders were present, as well as a large group of folks I volunteer with.  It was nerve wracking to say the least.  The accolades were many and I came away happy.  Will I try something like that again...not likely.  I love doing portraits but the ones that will be displayed in a public forum, like this one of Beryl Itani our local super volunteer, will have to be commissioned.  No more second guessing about whether it's wanted or not.  Glad that's over with...  well almost.  I'm now hearing reports that I was on tv and in the papers.  Yikes!

Today my drawing lesson is from "Anatomy and Figure Drawing" by Viv Foster.  So far it's just reading so I can relax for another day.  Hope you can too.


  1. Congratulations are in order Bonnie! Well done, my friend. Now...onto more happy planning of drawings to come!

  2. Hi Bonnie,
    Hope you're enjoying your relaxing month hibernating! Mid winter is the perfect time to do this. You might like it so much, you'll take two months off!

  3. Bonnie! You're famous! Way to go girl!
