: The hiatus is officuially over!

Yesterday, I created my first sponge-worthy (see Seinfeld) work in a month. I call this The Aviatrix, it's based on a photo of Louise Thaden.

Louise was born in my town of Bentonville, Arkansas, and is mentioned in the same breath as the other two great pioneering aviatrixes, Pancho Barnes and Amelia Earheart.

A childhood home of Louise's was about to be demolished, but an outcry of public support has apparently caused it to be set up for relocation and maybe set up as a museum.

If that happens, I'm hoping that this 18 x 24 drawing ends up hanging there. :-)

This is a great piece BB. Expression is very good, makes you feel like she is looking right at you.
