A long, long time ago...

Snowsparkle wrote about renewing her interest in sketching and about considering the idea of posing in the nude, allowing an artist friend to capture her as she is now before gravity has its way with her. I've always wanted to have one of those bodies that make people gasp but even when I was young and taut and lithe I didn't have classical lines. Still, as a teen I modeled for a local artist and his sketch group. Being youngsters, we were not allowed to model in the nude (we wore leotards) but we were drawn and sculpted as such. Recently, the son of that now deceased artist unearthed some of his father's statues. He contacted me and gave me this - I haven't seen this statue for almost 50 years but I can still feel the quiver in my arm muscles from holding the pose.

Lee and Dave have done the workspace post, giving us a look at the places where they spend creative time. Jumping on board with my own, though because I live in a tiny cottage where the single large space is divided by furniture, I needed separate photos to show my bookshelves (“library”) and my computer (“office”) which are divided by a sofa (“living room”). Don't go past the china cabinet to the right of the office or you'll be in the dining room.

I haven't the strength of will for Dave's suggestion of getting rid of an old book when a new one comes in (definitley daft, Dave) so I just keep adding bookcases. I am contemplating getting rid of my old phonograph records. That would make space for another dozen or so books. And if I also sold the phonograph player, there'd be room for another dozen more. Life is full of sacrifices.
