MY HEART IS BY THE SEA


Although Sweetie and I are back home after a lovely week on Anna Maria Island, my heart and mind are still there.  So I did this little drawing yesterday, of a shell Sweetie picked up in an AMI gift shop.  (It is "sanded" down to the shiny, multicolored nacre and is beautiful.)

This is charcoal pencil in my Strathmore Windpower Drawing sketchbook - 
9.5" x 12"


We have our last drawing class with Natasha today.  Every meeting, we have less people show up so I wonder how many will be there today with me?

Thanks so much, Kathryn, Sherry, Debbie, and Katherine :) High praise for my efforts and it turned out looking pretty good. Sometimes you don't need color (did I just say that??).
