Heaven Help Us, I Started Drawing Again
I haven't done any drawing since 1987, when I had a very brief membership at the Art Students League of New York. That will always be the high point of my art hobbyism...for a few bucks you could drop in on a figure drawing class after work. There were REAL NUDE MODELS and real WASHED-UP NYC ARTISTS looking to make bar money by wandering around muttering at our drawings, and there were girls with rips in their fish-net stockings and combat boots...and ritzy Connecticut housewives "pursuing a passion"...about all the exoticism this Missouri girl could handle.
Anyway, I started doing it again. Don't know why, it just happened. I'm freakishly insecure about my drawing, but that's just another bear to wrestle to the ground.
