As some of you know, I draw in church. I have oodles of sketchbooks full of drawings. Sometimes I start with real person, other times I make something up out of my head. 

 

The Pianist 2-12

 

We usually sit about 3-6 rows back on the right side of the sanctuary and I have a pretty good view of the pianist playing in the orchestra or accompanying the choir.  

 

The Pianist 6-23-13

 

She’s become my go-to model and I suppose I have drawn her at least 100 times over the years.  

 

The Pianist 8-12

 

Years ago I showed her the drawings in a prior sketchbook.  I thought she enjoyed them and was flattered. 

 

the pianist 9-1-13

 

My wife thought she was probably creeped out.  It was probably something in between.

 

the pianist 10-12

 

I just finished a sketchbook that took close to 2 years to fill. Since she is a recurring theme I thought I would show you those drawings.

 

the pianist 9-8-13

 

I drew her from the balcony a few times. Linda was in the choir so I moved around the sanctuary, sitting wherever I wanted just for fun.

People who sit still for long periods of time in the same position are good models.

 

the pianist 3-23-14

 

She is a wonderful starting point for my imagination, a muse. I thank her for that.
