Thanks so much, Blue Rose.

I am WAY behind commenting--on the road in NY at the moment.

this has a real postmodern feel to it and also vintage. i just love this drawing, would love to see more portraits like this! have you done much portraiture, with pencil or paint? what is your favorite medium?

Thanks, Laura!

Sigh.

I'm a Gemini, always playing around, never settling down. I also have ADHD which just exacerbates that tendency!

I can't say I have a favorite medium, but I was pleased with this pencil sketch! I did it in a concert, while waiting for it to begin, from an advertisement in the concert program. I was holding it all awkwardly on my lap so it's really a miracle I could draw at all.
