brown bear



We went to the museum today, where I gave a reading of my book (event was lots of fun and well-attended), and then we stuck around just to have some museum time. I drew the brown bear in the discovery room, concentrating on the fur around the face, and all the different directions it grows. A few minutes later, I was looking back at the bear from the other side of the room and noticed the mountainous shapes of the back, shoulder, and neck, so my patient daughter looked at a few more mineral specimens while I drew that angle as well.


How stunning both of the images are, for completely different reasons. Patient daughters are treasures. Thank you for this and all your drawings; they are one of the first things I look at when I get up in the morning.

Beautiful drawings.
