It has taken me quite a while to accept the fact that my workshop work is not usually my best. Not only is it difficult to focus clearly in a workshop setting, the concerns of having enough coffee and the volume level of music tend to disrupt and get in the way. My top concern is that the participants have a successful experience. As a result, my own workshop drawings are often discarded. The work of the participants must be the priority and, I must say, I have been so greatly pleased in this regard. The fact that what I am trying to communicate visually is getting through to participants is unbelievably rewarding! And, the fact that my own work seems to be sub-par during this same time period is disappointing but no longer a surprise. As I culled through the work from the expressive drawing human figure work, I decided that one drawing was worth some extra work. It was on good paper. "Fedora and Stripes" is the finished drawing. Thanks to Leta for being such a great model.
