A Sunday Afternoon with Bob
I cropped this image severely as I lost proportion although I had captured the lines. I ventured out today to visit with my favorite male model and discover the whereabouts of Tall Grass Studio. I'd been interested in jurying into the gallery space and heard so many wonderful things about the classes held there. Life drawing is held the first and third Sundays from 3-5PM. I walked in an hour late on a small group. They were a warm group and excepted my brain fog completely. My turnabout of directions took me half hour in opposite direction. Why wasn't the sun shining to give me a clue where east and west were? It's not easy to find a pay phone these days. Anyway, by the time I reached my destination my image intake had already exceeded the days maximum. So much new country to see out there. There are no two rocks alike! Pulled into color and line and was at days maximum. An afternoon off, long overdue. So glad I ventured out, shoulda worked on the downed trees from Fridays storm or even cut some grass. Another week, another day as I recover from loss of power and phone service for the weekend. Picked cherries easily this evening from the storm torn branches. I still hear the robins scolding me as I had gathered their rations.
Added full portait of Bob as he considered worth viewing. I guess upside down it would be fine.
