Pencil me in.....

This week has resulted in a major headache.... a side effect of drawing in detail. While I love the details, they manage to mangle my neck muscles and my eyes end up crossing at some point.

I thought that you might enjoy seeing the detail of this small piece. I spent most of yesterday, working on the leaves, which I felt, needed much work. Getting the light source correct on the 'hips' also took a bit of time. In the end, I am pleased...and will frame this work. finally.

So, that is my week in review. A lot of work... Large and small.

I hope that your weekend is a good one. We continue to stay cold but the snow comes and goes. I will be hopelessly hooked on the Olympics, with a few breaks to get out into the world.

Peace be with you.... where ever you are.

THAT is so beautiful! You are truly talented. You should be pleased with it, more than frame-worthy indeed!

Sorry 'bout your headache, hope you are feeling better. I get bad headaches once in a while and they are NO fun.

Peace to you too!
