"A profusion of pink roses being ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring." (--William Carlos Williams)
Some of you may be aware of the "portrait party" that's going on over at flickr right now. One submits a photo of oneself, and in turn, selects someone else's photo from the pool of photos and dashes off a portrait of that individual.
Flickr folks are so talented, and I'm totally unworthy, but I couldn't resist when I saw Jennifer Lawson's sweet photo of herself in a fabulous chapeau. It's a quick sketch I did over a sandwich at lunchtime in a grid-moleskine book, but it's just about the only sketching I've had a chance to do recently. Bear with me. I'm hoping to get back at it very soon. Jennifer is so much more attractive than this, and one day, I'll attempt her again more seriously.
Graduation for Duke's Nicholas School of the Environment is this weekend, and things will ease up a bit after that.
