Garden Art Chairs
I'm a little late posting these; better than never. This may be the last year for the NPCC/Sherway Garden Art Auction. This is my eighth chair for the cause (a fundraiser for Neilson Park Creative Centre). I'll miss the excitement - but not having my studio filled with three chairs from March to June!
A gift made for a friend - found objects (tree bark, moss, sticks, empty snail shells and the odd bug), with a metal-tooled front and a cardboard back. It was lot of fun to forage for the makings and then put it all together.

Who tortures himself for his art. Wonderful model.

Sarah is one of those models whose face changes with every pose. Three poses - three different people.  She's always intriguing to draw.
This would be the night the model didn't show up. We took turns sitting for 20 minutes. I was very pleased with how this one turned out.
