can you hear me now?

can he hear me now? probably not! after all -- this is the picture of a teenage boy's ear. what can a person expect!?!

this is taken from a colored pencil drawing that i'm doing of my son, scott, puckered up to kiss his 2-year-old neice, whom he had just tossed up in the air -- much to her excitement and delight.

i have scott's side of the drawing all done except for some little touches i might add later. each time i start to work on it, i'm always afraid i'll do something and mess the whole thing up.

my husband, jerry, said, "well, you can't just leave it half finished like that. he looks pretty dorky standing there puckered up for a kiss and there is nothing and nobody there!"

ok, so i have to finish it . . . i've been working on getting psyched up to work on it all week, and i finally had the chance to work on it some last night at work. now i'm hooked again, so i can't wait for the house to be quiet tonight (after all our company leaves) so i can work on it some more.

who knows -- maybe i'll be finished w/ it soon!

done w/ prang colored pencils on 65# white 11x14 sketchpad paper and drawn from a photo taken on 10/31/05 as raven was headed out for an evening of trick-or-treating.

very carefully observed and beautifully rendered - I'm sure you'll be able to finish the other half just fine

This really nice--so detailed and yet soft too. I was wondering why his hear was more horizontal but the earring was vertical and your story explained it--he's looking up at the child he just tossed in the air. I'd love to see the finished piece! Or even the rest of his face--it's really good so far.
