When I lay it out here for you to look at, the flaws leap at me, clumsiness abounds in the shading, the colour missing, etc., etc. et nauseating cetera.
For now, though, I'm just very happy that I didn't let my lack of natural talent and/or skill stop me from trying something I realized I might enjoy. . . That's why I'm willing to post these occasional images of my sketches, not at all because I'm fishing for compliments on them, believe me. I do see them for what they are, but along with all the limitations, I'm determined to see what's good in them as well. This time, I got to see that worth through my granddaughter's eyes! (And she now has a quirky little bit of me, an "heirloom" she may someday show her own grandchild. Who can tell?)
