Yesterday was a long day. Ken’s first treatment was at 9:30 and, with all the testing done yesterday, we did not leave the Cancer Center until 4:00 in the afternoon. I took several magazines and some drawing materials. I just bought a new set of Sharpie markers. I wanted a set with pastel colors. Whew! let me say their pastels are not soft pastel colors! They are intense…anyway I had the latest National Geographic magazine with me and it has an article about the Sami people that herd reindeer in Norway. The article opens with a photograph of a beautiful young girl. She is bundled up in a scarf and is full of light. Incredible! Using my markers I did this drawing. I tried to lighten it this morning with white watercolor paint with so-so results. Anyway, I loved doing this one and learned how to layer these strong markers. Fun, distracting and challenging. Hope you have a copy of the magazine to see the remarkable original.
