(These are photos of the drawings, so they are not the best quality. I'll scan them in later)
The first three are from high school. You can tell that I like to just draw what's in front of me.
The one above of the figures is from my first semester of freshman year Drawing class. I politely refused to draw the nude models we had as an assignment. The prof respected my refusal and allowed to draw the wrestling team (that I managed) while they practiced. The professor became one of my favorites in all of college. Even four years later whenever I'd see him on campus, he remembered my name and stopped to chat. I only had him in that one class.
The one above of the homeless man is one my favorite sketches I've ever done. He would always sit outside the internet cafe in Spain and I have a few sketches I've done of him. I did this one while sitting in the cafe. There was just a wall of glass between us. I wonder if he felt me staring at him.
And finally, two of my favorites:
(the second one is already framed and I didn't feel like taking it out--so sorry for the glare!)
So there you go. Just a few of the ones I really love. Do you have any old memories collecting dust in the closet that should be framed, put on the shelf, preserved for future generations? Maybe sketches like me? Maybe just precious old photos? Or the ceramic pieces you made in a class a few years ago? Or maybe sweet love letters from your husband or handmade cards from when the kids were little?
