Sketch 1

I am a week late with the first lesson in the "Drawing & Painting Portraits" online class with Misty Mawn, that my sweet daughter Shariyah gifted me with. This being, because Shariyah and her new husband Cameron spent a few days with us before returning to New Zealand, their home. Then daughter Miriam (21st birthday today!) and boyfriend & musical partner Micheal, moved back into the household for the Winter, while working on new music and getting inspired with our beautiful land in NW Montana. So the house has been buzzing with energy, friends, parties and lots of LoVe!!
This first drawing was a great graphite meditation in the early hours of the morning, and I'm looking forward to catching up in the next few days. I need to begin a new habit of drawing daily....
