A group spearheaded by my pal Russ Walks are posting some hero sketches from the Covid 19 crisis. I chose Capt. Brett Crozier of the United States Navy. His stand for his sailors and the manner in which he has stood up in the face of political posturing is inspiring. Truly a "True Blue" leader and one that we need more of these days.

My mother in law wanted an "ancestor" painting and dropped this frame on me. So I filled it with an anonymous gentleman I named Nicolai, after my favorite fine artist Nicolai Fechin. No, Fechin did not look like this. Anyhow, I put The Shadow motion picture soundtrack on and finished this before the final note was played, about 45 minutes. Fun exercise that I'd like to do more of.

Tayla sure casts some nice, deep shadows to work with. Nicest sketch of the night and it'll probably have to last for some time what with the current health situation hammering this planet. Stay safe and healthy, folks.

Big shapes with large and simple shadows. Subtle is never a bad thing.
Tonight was supposed to be our long pose session, one we had discussed for some time and planned a while ago. As Maxwell Smart would have put it... "Missed it by that much!" That much being a week. No one knows how long this crisis will last but as soon as we get the go ahead that it is safe to meet again we will fire right back up. Until then let's be kind to our fellow humans and stay healthy.

I've cancelled our Black Hand session this week and probably for the next couple due to the Covid19 crisis. Better safe than sorry. I'll post what I have left and then probably recycle some of the ones that I consider "good". Let's all be calm and safe and we'll get through this.
