My dear neighbor, who has been a generous supporter of my art, asked me to draw our friend Kirby in charcoals as a gift for his people. I hated the charcoal drawing I tried at first. I just couldn't get Kirby's fluffiness into the charcoal and his personality wasn't coming out. I put the drawing away and after a day of thinking about it, I decided that Kirby would best be created in a simple line drawing. And then in another line drawing -because I got a spot of something on the paper! Ugh, I hate redrawing, but it's good for me, and now he is finished.
