There’s been a long convoluted detour away from my original intent to draw lots of faces, so I steered myself back in that direction today with this sketch.
The woman who plays Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis) has beautiful deep-set eyes, incredible cheekbones and a perfect heart-shaped face. All of that makes her Dutch boy bob look like a million bucks. I wore my hair like this when I was six. I did not look this good. If you didn’t know that’s who this is supposed to be, that’s okay. It’s still an interesting face and worth the big charcoal mess I’ve made.
Feels like I’ve been on vacation for a week with all this Netflix watching. At least I’m feeling slightly less guilty about it now for having finished this.
And now I deserve another cup of coffee without any charcoal dust floating in it. Hope you’re having a fantastic Friday!
I don’t know what I’d do without you. Well, I guess deep down I do know that without you there would simply be no me. That would suck. I know sometimes I say that YOU suck, but of course I don’t mean it. Not really.
Mostly I love you to pieces.
I love you when you’re busy and crazy and tell me to hurry up, but I love you more when you’re laid back and mellow and lazy. I love how you make me breathe the air, see and touch and hear and know the incredible beauty of all the other lives around me.
I love that you are funny and strange and complicated. I love your ups and downs and detours. I love your crazy joy. I even love your sadness. Your bad bits teach me to embrace and appreciate your happy side and all the good things that fill you up and make you so worth living.
I love that you are beautiful and good. Sometimes I think you’re hard, but then I look around and see others who are not so lucky and not so blessed.
I am so very grateful to have you. I know how fragile you are, and I try every day to do the right things so that you’ll be around for a long, long time.
I know one day we’ll have to part. But let’s not let fear and worry kill the fun we’re having in each small moment, okay? I know you will always give me a kick in the ass when I need it and that’s okay. I will still love you with all my heart. And all my might. For however long we have together.
I love you, my wonderful life, no matter how you may change in the blink of an eye; right here, right now, just the way you are.
