Going "with the grain" helps things go more smoothly but not always. Your drawings are so expressive William...like you :)

Greetings, Aleksandra — yes, I just stay away from that stuff. The only one I use is Networked Blogs.

Index cards! I was thinking, someday I will have to set up a one-man show in a gigantic abandoned warehouse, and I will scatter easels all around, sometimes a hundred or two hundred feet apart, and on each easel there will be one index card. And then, at just the right moment, when everyone is talking and drinking champagne, I will turn on a big fan and the drawings will go up in the air like autumn leaves, or confetti, and some of them will land in the cake. You’re invited, of course!

Janice, you’re kind. You’ve heard the term “knothead.” I think that applies to this particular self-portrait.

William, you are killing me! That my cookies have provided no solice is an unacceptable outcome! Please, please smile for me! I know it is a narrow view...but I need it. Smile William. Show me the possibility.

Bonjour, l'autre fois c'était Braque, aujourd'hui Dali... peut-être à cause de sa barbe et de son regard aux yeux ronds et perçants...

But... but... Annie. I am smiling.

Martine, speaking of eyes, what about this drawing?
