There was a time when I could draw without pain...before arthritis attacked my hands and made it impossible to hold a pencil for any length of time. I was photographing some of my older works this evening, and decided to post this graphite drawing of a Louisiana sculptor, Clyde Connell. I did this work in February of 1990, and consider it probably my favorite drawing. I was quite taken with her beautiful face which expresses such character and contentment. What was really amazing about this beautiful woman, was that she did sculptures of monumental size! So interesting! This is graphite on illustration board and is 16" X 20".
