The final week was spent drawing the satin jacket that the model wore the week before. The jacket was fitted on a mannekin. Since I had finished the drawing of the live model the week before, I decided to suggest the mannekin, rather than pretend the model was still there while I was drawing the jacket. I spent four days on the first drawing and then did the smaller second sketch on the final day of class.

Frank:

I was delighted to see your photo, just to know for certain this was really you. It sounds like your life has been a bit of an adventure since we saw each other last. So has mine. I was married in August to a wonderful guy named Michael Flier, a proffesor at harvard and all round wonderful guy. We met through match.com. The wedding was in our own garden behind our house in Cambridge--while it rained gently down upon all. I work for the Boston Foundation these days, which is the region's largest community foundation, funding nonprofits and serving as a civic leader. Would love to be in touch with you. You can reach me at david.trueblood@tbf.org

I am so impressed by your work--although given how talented your children are, I can't say it surprises me. But really--these are beautiful drawings.

Drop a line when you have a moment.
