These photos are from the first day – you can see me in the pink sweater with the face mask – looking frightened. First day was freaky, […]

I find studying drapery, which usually means my favorite linen napkin, to be satisfying. The folds create interesting shapes and patterns. And, there is a bit of understatement. I come back to drapery periodically because it is a challenge to draw. One day, I may start painting the drapery. Hmmm, I think I’ll put that […]

Ten weeks is enough time to sink your […]
