No time at work to doodle much, but I did sit in the car today and sketch this piece. I rather like it. It is from something in the latest Smithsonian magazine....which hasn't folded as of yet, thankfully! I flipped through the magazine to find something interesting to draw...I always stop on people.
I listened to my latest book on CD while working on the sketch. The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet by Colleen McCullough takes up the story of the Bennet sisters made famous by Jane Austen. The story is told through the eyes of their spinster sister Mary. Mary has gone through quite a transformation during the 17 years since her older sisters marriages to Mr Darcy and Mr Bingley. I'm not sure if I completely like the author's suppositions of what has become of the Bennet women, but I am finding the book a nice respite from the overly spiritualized tomes I've read recently.
You might remember the author from her previous best sellers which include my favorite, The Thorn Birds, which I read when my oldest boys were still very young.
I'll let you know whether this one gets a thumbs up or down when I finish it.
