This is the End

A December Tail

This one is also from early December. I was just fascinated by her feet and wished I could have taken a photograph as this would have made a hell of a painting. As usual, black and white charcoal pencil on gray Strathmore paper.

Another pair of 10-minute poses. These were done on 12/2/2014. As usual, black and white charcoal pencil on gray Strathmore paper.

A Day That Will Live in Infamy

December 8, 1980 was also a Monday. I learned of John's assassination from Howard Cosell during Monday Night Football. This was the night the ugly side of the American gun culture became crystal clear for me. Years later an assassin broke into the home of George Harrison and tried to kill him as well, but George was smart enough not to move to America and his assassin could only get his hands on a knife.
