I'm going to be out of town from Friday till Wednesday and will be posting from my phone. Today I'm practicing for that. The drawing on the left is a remarkable flower bud on a canna lily in our front garden. On the right top is a hummingbird that I spotted on a phone wire early this morning.
On the bottom right is a garden fork, very simple. After drawing it I understood how simple and elegant the construction is. The tines are twisted slightly, which makes them stronger.
On the left is a bisque-fired clay mask that a student abandoned in my studio many years ago. I f Susie Johnson happens to read this, please know that I have your mask and I think of you often. This mask is one of my favorite things.
And on the right top is a graphite wing carved to be a perfect shape for drawing with.
