On slightly wrinkled paper,  this paper looks to be more wrinkled than it actually is - the young model  also trains as a gymnast.

Cogito ergo sum

Cartesian - I think therefore I am or thinking precedes existence or I think therefore I strive.

A discussion

Two very fast drawings which helps to keeps one's hand moving.

Young woman wearing a hat

She also wore a lot of make-up which I chose to ignore as much as possible with some difficulty.

Inward looking

Perhaps absorbed with her own thoughts yet possibly aware of some degree of scrutiny from others - or both.

I received this deliciously painted  award from long time friend and fellow artist, Barbara Muir
two weeks ago. She has also promised to prepare a nutritious repast for me the next time I visit,
peach crepes and I suppose strawberries will soon be in season as well. 
But she is v busy with a show coming up at the Amsterdam Whitney gallery in NY so I'll give her breathing space until after that exhibit - one must be considerate! Thank you Barbara for this Happy Art Award, it makes me v happy and a tad hungry as well.
