The Drawing Class

As may be remembered a few weeks ago I returned to college and have been taking a drawing class. I love learning to draw but the class has been extremely physically taxing, making my entire body scream at times, but as I am wont to do I have soldiered on, and thus far only skipped a half a class. Posted below is a product of this learning experience. I have to draw myself using only inside lines... (not even sure what that means) ten times at least. Great way to get to love yourself.. looking deep and long at the image (while drawing of course) and at the same time keep saying, "I love you!"

Ella, this is a fantastic drawing but it might be you 40 years from now, not today. You'll still be adorable so hang onto it for goodness sake.

I went back to college and had an art class that was, in short, devastating to me in so many ways I am still blocking it out. Anyway, we had a self portrait and mine apparently upset one young gal so much she insisted on doing one of me right then and there and in about 15 minutes. No kidding, maybe even less, she had done a beautiful drawing of me. I have both in my art storage folders and will show you some day. I think you'll like it. :) Keep it up, though. You have so many talents.
