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.
