Christmas Party and David Hettinger's Raffle win!
I need to apologize again for the quality of photos. Both my drawing of Sylvia and David's drawing of Jordan were on blue paper. Someday...
I assumed we'd only have short poses as at break we were quitting and celebrating Christmas and how much this group of artists mean to each other. So I didn't bring my oil pastels, but worked in color pencil. Sylvia's poses were fluid. I fell into the zone quickly. Lotsa wine, champagne, and rum punch alongside delectable array of feasting options. Chris Hughes brought a great chili to partner with shrimp and cocktail sauce, hummus, meat pastries, spinach pastries, salsa with avocado and cream cheese, confectionaries, even taffy coated sesame seeds. I made gingerbread cookies without a clue as to the spread that would be set up. The highlight of the evening, Ronnie raffled of several of David Hettinger's drawings and I was so fortunate to win one. The other great prizes were nice too, chroma paints, wine and cheese? gift baskets, I brought in a nice pointsettia from my sister Darlene to raffle. I wasn't really paying attention to the other prizes. I got one of the best! A recent drawing of Jordan at a summer group. Maybe I'll find my view of the same pose? If I remember, I'll share it here. In the meantime I'm the proud new owner of an original David Hettinger. http://davidhettinger.com Merry Christmas to me!
