Waiting for her lover in Tucson, Arizona by 

1162 views by 21 Feb. 2014

A pen and ink sketch of my partner, Diane, waiting on a bench until I finish my sketch. Tohono Chul Park is a wonderful urban park in Tucson that has several older fine homes on it devoted to art galleries, gift shops and restaurants. These are surrounded by meandering trails through their lush enhanced, though very natural, gardens of native Sonoran Desert vegetation. It’s beautiful and peaceful.
She’s shaded by a Palo Verde tree and rocks and a century plant created the natural composition.
Drawn in my Canson sketch book, 5.5″×8.5″ acid free recycled paper.

Featured in “Tone It Down” group.
Featured in “Inspired Art” group.
Featured in “Show Us Your Bloopers” group 7/10/10.
Featured in “Art Universe” group 12/21/11
Featured in “Art With Meaning” group 2/1/12
Featured in “Creative Cards” group 2/23/14

This drawing was the ‘avatar’ for the “New Beat Generation” group for the first six months of 2010. I truly enjoyed seeing this image every time I scrolled through my groups!

A persona who has apparently lived a relatively long, varied and eclectic life. My Red Bubble portfolios reflect my seeming persona… and IF there’s any veracity to these reflections then some sense of HUMOUR and enjoyment should be PRESENT!
‘Ola!’ ;~}}}

    I bet she served you an extra helping of dinner for this lovely portrait … seriously good work.

  • Me lady Diana is a paragon of all things lovely and real. She’s not sentimental and does not tolerate noise or fools easily. Her presence in my life is the greatest gift I’ve given me. and for her I’ll foresake almost all my foolishness!
    Often my portraits don’t carry a strong visual resemblance, but a sense of character. This one has remarkably) captured both.
    Now yer gettin some of da juice you asked fer!!! hahaha
