This is pastel chalk on watercolor paper, 9×12, though some will be lost in matting.

This is a quick sketch of a persimmon I was using for a still life. It got so ripe while I was painting it I thought for sure it would be good. But no—one bite was all I could stand—turned my mouth inside out. I like everybody’s ink drawings so much I want to do more.
I’m really too old to be doing a drawing like this one November 13, 2007
I don’t know what kind of critter this was–possibly a rabbit–with one long tooth left. Maybe the teeth grew so long the poor thing couldn’t eat anymore? I tried Bristol Board but didn’t like the surface for charcoal.

I got these mannequins a long time ago for still life painting. They’re supposed to be anatomically accurate, but I don’t know….I was going to put skin on them and make them look like real people but decided that was more work than I wanted to do. That’s a pearl earring but it looks more like a little light bulb!

Playing dolls again. This one is so small and pale it probably doesn’t show up very well. I can already tell that drawing every day is helping my right brain perk better.
