This is the lion sketch I drew with pencil, re-drew in places about 5 times, then painted with watercolors. I had to refer to photos on Google [GOD bless 'em] for how lions look because it's been a long time since I went to a zoo! This is 8 x 11 in my sketch book obviously and also clipped to my portable drawing board. Sketches are those things that take me 15 minutes to an hour to accomplish as a general rule, regardless of the medium I use. Also sketches are usually a preliminary way of getting an idea on paper of something I was thinking about or want to paint in oils later. Making sketches are a way of practicing in other words.
Also, for the record, I am not now and NEVER was a member of a non-profit AARP but they "track " me on web. Also, for the record, all telephones of this blog and its underlying account are mine, and are physically located in my apt in Missouri. Some of them are cell phones, some are landline phones but all are in my apt at this very minute and normally, most of the time, unless I walkabout. Also, for the record there are still many attempts by cyber-criminals to steal every thing I do or am. This morning a criminal broke into one of my cell phones and ripped outa it a txt msg I sent yesterday. I suppose the criminals wanted to get the content and the phone number of my contact. I have reported that to the carrier about a zillion times and also to the @FBI. I am the ONLY person [a white WOMAN] who is authorized on any telephone account of mine and on my isp account and on my on line accounts. I am adding into this post my selfie and my signature as it is signed on an oil painting I painted years ago, that I had put as my identifier on my blogs intermittently since about 2004. Also remember that I have never had a boss while I have lived in Missouri [Oct 2009] and that when I had a boss, it was a hospital. I am the so-called "boss" of the art I create, the words I write, the blogs I created and maintain, and the book I wrote, and the prolife efforts that I make. There is NO ONE authorized to represent me in art or literature and there never was. Neither is there any one authorized to use my name in any way, to sign my name in my absence, or to represent themselves as being an agent of mine in any way.

My selfie from spring 2014 but I look exactly the same this year. I am still putting my hair in lop-sided pony tail when painting, creating art of any sort, or walkingabout or photographing to prevent hair from getting into my eyes.
