Drawing what's in front of me








As my dad, Bill, suggested I then drew what was in front of me. The socked foot was first, and though it's not a good drawing, I've included it to show how I loosened up as I progressed.







I found my feet fascinating, I've never looked at them so intently before, not that they're that far away from my face, barely five feet. I love the big toe on my left foot, and the way my toes huddle together. The last drawing I did reminds me of Albrecht Durer's study of praying hands.

Back to work, yes! I think these are great. The praying hands -- so funny because before she died, Scott's mother had a framed drawing of that very picture in her bedroom -- he had copied it when he was 11 years old :)

The last drawing is Durer's praying hands. Isn't it? Great to see you back at work.
