Sunday .....!

A few years ago in Tacoma, WA I saw a paper sculpture of Frida Kahlo. This is a sketch from a photo of it. She had a hand for an earring. Her face had "grommets", paper wads and squares that shaped the whole thing. I'm sure my sketch of it doesn't read correctly....but I enjoyed trying to translate the odd shapes.
What about you...have you done something artful today?

Sketch: Celeste Bergin, Kahlo, pencil on 6x9 paper

I enjoy how you see art in things,

This is a really interesting drawing. I did nothing artful on Sunday--a waste.
