The day and the sketch started badly. I quit, then went back, two--maybe three times. Finally it started coming together. Interesting how that happens. I still call it 'magic' but now I'm fairly certain I can make it happen again, a little bit, sometimes anyway!
We live at the north end of Seattle in Shoreline, Washington. Between the two of us, we've been struggling, striving, and sometimes even enjoying our efforts with oils, pastels, or acrylics for 80 years! We'd love to hear from you.
