I had good sales in Ruidoso at my booth and even had time to draw this little duchess on the front cover of a novel by the same name. Wickedly, her arm looks like it has been twisted and replaced - woops- but otherwise I think she sat a striking pose for me.
It was good for me to draw in public and to relax into the enjoyable effort after such a busy two weeks of pre-preparation and then the busy-ness of setting up a booth. It's amazing that even when you're tired physically - drawing can take you to a highly focused and intense zone and provide you a sense of well-being. While fully conscious and aware, self-consciousness and physical weariness seems to disappear for awhile. The most amazing prescription... I just can't say enough about the secret pill I've found.
