Showing up

You have to assume that things I've blogged about in the past as regular occurrences are ongoing. Puzzles. Bridge. Cooking. Reading. Yawn.

But it's been a while since I've mentioned the figure drawing. It continues on a twice monthly basis. Last night was the most recent session. I had to swap for an afternoon bridge session, so I arrived a bit tired and unprepared. Still, I think it was Woody Allen who made the quip about 95% of life being about "just showing up". By just showing up, I'm realizing I've churned out quite a number of drawings, and am beginning to get my sea legs again.

These are a mixture of very quick gesture studies (1-2 min) and some slightly longer ones - mostly in the 15-20 min range.

Wonderful drawings. You can really feel the mass of the human body, no easy task. I like the way you have made collages of them too. What part of the body do you find the most difficult to draw?

Hands and feet, where these relatively quick drawings are concerned. Not so hard when you have plenty of time.

Wow, these are GOOD!!!

Oh, the last thing I need is a new blog friend, but we are the same age, and I thought (after finding you on Suki's blog) why not?
You just cannot have too many friends.

I appreciate your love of the garden too. I'll be back to read more later.

PS. I believe my life started anew at 65 too. (even though I still work, I've acquired lots of new hobbies in the art world).
