Your words are so true, and you never know what you will garner from those we meet. I'm glad I've met you, and have your face to draw. Sometimes the Wizard is more than who you are, and it has been lovely recently to see other depictions of you by other artists.
My journey has always been about drawing, and my love of nature, color, and painting. I dedicated my life to family and art, and I appreciate every day I am able to do what I love. I draw and paint all day, and my husband and I cook together at night, or sometimes I'm chief cook and other times he is. If life wasn't without pain...I guess we wouldn't appreciate the good times as much. I don't appreciate my physical self, but I like what my brain and hands can accomplish. I enjoy sharing the fruits of my labor with those who make me laugh and inspire me. I envisioned you long before I found you on line, and I drew your face before you became a living model for my visions. So I guess our vision from our youth intertwined and met in our old age. Life is wonderful and strange that way. Thank you for your recent offerings of poses. I haven't been able to download them all, but perhaps life will sort itself out fairly soon. Thank you Marion!
