Sometimes I need to draw. I get anxious and distracted til I sit down and get something on paper. It rarely produces "useful" drawings, but I can't resist. Tonight I really wanted to draw a deer head. Why? I have no idea.

I watched the movie Jane Eyre last weekend and I loved this exchange:

Rochester: (looking at Jane's portfolio) Were you happy when you painted these?
Jane Eyre: Yes. To paint is one of the keenest pleasures I have ever known.
Rochester: Then your pleasures have been few.

Black Dog

I've had the black dog, as Churchill would say, following me around the last couple days.

Miri's Apple

Miriam was walking around eating apple the size or her head. It made her happy enough that I had time to sketch her. She kept her back to me because didn't want me to take it away.

I threw a little color on it to make it easier to see.
