Okay, this is the final portrait in this particular commission. 8×10 Canson Mi-tientes paper with graphite and white charcoal. She is such a cutie with beautiful eyes and smile and a glorious messy mop of curly hair. It was a joy to draw her.

Next, I need to get the frames put together, painted, and the portraits framed. Then, I need to work on getting some photo prints made and framed for another commission.

And, in the meantime, I need to get some photos made of myself for the annual portrait swap with the artist’s forum that I follow. And I need to receive the photos from my swap partner. The annual portrait swap is really fun, although this is only my second one. LOL!

Fun, fun, fun! It is good to be busy.

I tried to get some photos of the full moon, the other night. I was walking Toby out front, when I looked up and saw the moon through the tree branches. So pretty! I took Toby back in, got my camera, zoom lens, tripod, closed the garage door to cut out that light, and set up. I could not get a clear shot no matter what I did. I don’t know what the problem was, but I am going to have to figure that out. Then there was a big coyote howl that sounded very close and moving. It started loudly behind my right shoulder and it sounded and felt like it was moving around behind me to my left shoulder. Weird. Well, I decided I had had enough and it was time to go in. What a waste of film! LOL! Isn’t it great not to have to worry about film, anymore?
