Thanks to India for inviting me to take part. Thanks to all of you for presenting such great work.

This is the youngest member of my family (at the moment), my niece’s younger son:

Rosa

Another attempt at drawing Rosa while she was drawing her mom. “Please, please, pleeeeease can we draw with your markers?” Rosa asked today. She only loves me for my Stabilo mini-pens.

Rachel checking e-mail

The above was my second attempt to draw my lovely friend Rachel, whom I’m visiting in Ireland this week. The first time, I had just outlined her hair when she got up to go do something. So I switched to drawing her daughter, Rosa, who also got up and moved as soon as I’d sketched as far as her eyebrows. Then Rachel sat back down, but with her head in a different position. So I finished that drawing, but it wasn’t very flattering or accurate. Later, when she opened her laptop to check e-mail, however, she did sit still long enough for me to get a decent sketch.

Below is the drawing of Rosa that I started while she was watching TV from a chair near the window. Then she got up and moved to a pillow on the floor, so I went back to my previous project of drawing her mom. Later, however, Rosa sat at the table with me and started drawing Rachel, too. So I finished my drawing of Rachel and resumed my drawing of Rosa, although she was sitting right next to me and in a totally different position.

All these people, moving all the time!

Just after we ate Thanksgiving dinner the power went out which happens more than we’d like around here. We have a battery that runs a few lights and we eventually all wound up in the kitchen reading—for hours. My granddaughter was looking at a big “Calvin and Hobbes” book and falling into wonderful poses. This is the only one she stayed in long enough for me to get a quick sketch. I think children’s gestures are wonderful but they change so quickly.

I have a 16-lb. turkey and all the trimmings to do so I got my granddaughter Emma and my grandson Mason to collaborate for today’s drawing. Emma says the turkey didn’t have enough detail so she added “rainbow slippers” for its feet and a Pilgrim hat. Mason has just started studying Chinese at his public (!) middle school so I asked him to add a few characters to give the whole thing a classy touch. It says “Hello China”—something he knows how to write. I added the sun, hills and trees. Happy Thanksgiving!
