|Drawing of me, 20x16|

(I have trouble taking photos of drawings on white paper.)
Terry set up a still life yesterday--a vintage stuffed monkey (Percy, I believe). First, she finished the drawing of me; then finished two great drawings of Percy. Hmmm.....I was the warm up for a stuffed monkey? My husband loves the sketch and thinks it looks exactly like me. I think it's a bit flattering but I recognize my extra chin, my missing neck, my mother's nose, my dad's long upper lip--and I'm wearing my ever-present hoops and a men's shirt from the thrift shop. Yep, that's me. I would not have been able to pose for something like this; she sketched me while I was drawing New Orleans (below). I hope to submit it to TheVirtualPaintOut--a first for me--hope I can follow directions.
