Pencil sketch of my best friend in 1980 filtered with poster edges in ps. The paper was originaly white, I tinted it to yellow. Moose was her nickname because of her abundance of naturally curly hair.

Like most of us here, I was born to create. I am not happy with myself or others if I can’t. I am a lover of sience, fantasy and nature and I don’t think I could ever create anything as wonderous as our natural world but I can try.

    I remember 1980 – vaguely. This is really good, Diane. The eyes are perfect!

  • Thank you Scott, I remember them vaguely also. What I do remember is that they were pretty wonderful.

    Really like this one! wonderful expression in the eyes and I like the dot work. I have a Hendrix drawing that is almost all dots but I screwed up and made him right handed so only have it posted on my personal site.

  • Thank you Michael, I’d love to see the Hendrix. Hey if he could play with his teeth whos to say he wasn’t ambidextrous?
