I did some painting today, but it was too late in the day to photograph it. Instead, here is a sketch in my toned-paper sketchbook...a copy of a Sargent drawing. My, but he had beautiful models.

I took a walk in the late afternoon. My regular route took me past Beet's Auto Repair. They always have interesting things in their yard. This is a the hood of a truck made into a rabbit. It's propped up against a boat. Not something you see everyday.

All of my artist friends make art look so easy, so beautiful. I'm looking at the graphite work and wondering how I never seem able to achieve this beautiful look...She is beautiful indeed.

Great drawing. The rabbit is weird.

The juxtaposition of the two different heads is a riot. Especially the eyes...very clever, Celeste.
I love your drawing and even if it is a copy it still shows your confident line.

The sketch is beautiful, Celeste. You knew where and when to stop . It is extremely accomplished. I also congratulate you on the diversity of your work and your constant experimenting. That is certainly the way to keep developing.
