Another variation on a statue by Eric Gill.

Not really a fist: just a closed hand.

In the corner of my little living room--a glider and a lamp.

Only my second pastel of the week, this is a version of my little homelet (a park model RV). It's not really quite so green, though it might have been when new in 1984. The blurry stuff in front is the latticework on the covered patio. In this low-res image, it might be hard to tell.

Hey, folks, I've been undrawing for a few days while moving and getting settled. This one was a 'commission'--my cousin wanted a pastel of her 'homelet' in the RV park (into which I too just moved.)

From another Olympic photo.

A blast from the past--probably the only 'old' piece of my work I have. It's about 20 years old and maybe 4 inches tall. In getting ready to move I pulled it up out of a box in the garage and thought I might as well photograph it.

Based on an Olympic photo, I think it looks more like Icarus falling.
