I transferred my drawing of the symbolism portrait onto 22 x 30 illustration board. I've made some changes to it and I'm still not sure if its where I want it to be quite yet. The central images are fine, but I'm not quite sure where I'm going with the right side yet. I don't want to overcrowd the drawing, yet I want it to contain elements that are important to me too.

It may be one of those things that simply come to me as the drawing progresses. The photograph isn't great, as the lines were quite faint on the drawing so the camera didn't register them well and I had to try to adjust them with a graphics program.
Here are the newest additions to the farm. I know they are intended for food, but they are rather cute and do have personalities. It will be interesting to watch them as they grow. They're about 6 or 7 weeks old. Two will be picked up this weekend by a neighbour and three will remain. I'm sure there will be some drawings taking place around them.

Pretty soon you won't have any sleeping time. Wedding flowers and now piggies. I love all of Tripod's photos, and the goslings. These piglets are so cute. You can see their veins right thru that delicate pink skin. Then they ruin their clean look by having dirty noses. Funny aren't they? May I use the piglet pictures? Thanks, Jeanne

Sleeping is so over-rated Jeanne :)

Yes, the piggies are cute,aren't they? By all means use their photos. I'd love to see the results.

I have always burned the candle at both ends. My normal bedtime is 1-3 am. I have always been a night owl. The only problem now is, I have a hard time getting up in the morning and have to have an afternoon nap.
