Drawing therapy

Last week I was lucky to catch the exhibit of John Singer Sargent's charcoal portraits at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York. Although I work primarily in cut paper collage for my books, drawing is my first love. These portraits were so inspiring! I am motivated to do more drawing again.

My daughter, viewing the 1923 portrait of Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon who later became known as the Queen Mother.

Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, who became
a sculptor and later founded the
Whitney Museum of American Art.
I love the amazing perspective of her
outstretched arm!
