As I had wrote in a previous post, last week the beginning drawing class
had been drawing each other. "SKETCH OF CECELIA" is my class demo
and "SKETCH OF ME" which I did about a year ago, was shown as 
another example.

My . . . I look serious huh?

A heat wave is on a roll!
San Diego has been unbelievable, yet minimal 
in comparison to the rest of the country. 
Unfortunately I had not been able to escape 
to the beach for relief, so doing the next best thing . . . 
dreaming of it!

Perky and lively little Yorkie!

Been so consumed with teaching two classes at UCSD Extension 
this summer. The little Yorkie is an example for my pastel class
to illustrate the use of lines and texture onto black paper.

The students always stimulate my own creativity.

It was late afternoon and . . .

the sun was blazing . . .
as I withered from the scorch.

The heat parched my mouth . . .
as I walked.

Yet a beauty I behold . . . 
from an illusion that lightened my step.

 The orange clouds appeared to melt before my eyes.
