My Blog News, and Two Miniature Drawings

"Sandra at the Lotus Pond," 5" x 7", graphite on card

"Martha," 7" x 5", graphite on card

Since I need commissions at this time, my emphasis lately has been over at my portrait blog. If you haven't been watching it, or would like to help me spread the word, here is another opportunity to see what's cooking, by clicking: http://monaconnerportraits.blogspot.com. I now have email subscription capability to all of my active blogs for those who prefer receiving the latest posts via email. On my portrait blog the subscription sign-up is at the bottom, (just so you won't miss it there.)

Above are several miniature-scale drawings I've done recently to thank a few dear friends, Martha and Dwane of Charlotte, NC, and Sandy and Dwight of Trenton, NJ, who have graciously hosted me in their homes this year. It's great keeping in touch with old friends, and most of us, (except Dwane), all attended college together. Grounds For Sculpture in Trenton is the location of the lovely lotus garden where I drew Sandy. I'm hoping to have some time this week to start a new miniature, and to finish After the Graduation.

Tracy, Karen, and Deb, thanks so much. Martha and Sandy were pleased with the drawings, and I, too, am hoping that the portrait business will thrive!
