Two busy days, drawing out a large painting called The Invisible Woman. It's harder to see and check a large drawing, especially in my small room. I wonder how the masters managed to check such work? Either from a distance or in a distant mirror I expect.

Last week I wrote two more short stories but found it difficult and they need redrafting. Still, it's good to try and that's how you learn.

I've added a few free downloads to my website, including two new Desktop Wallpaper images. The Crucifixion art one is shown. You can download the image in lots of different sizes on my new Free Downloads page.

The detail of your work Mark is incredible.
I liked what you said about trying. For me, sometimes the trying is a lot harder than being able to do something from experience and know how. I don't like to fail, but failure is just part of the process.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I always enjoy seeing you.

Failure isn't part of the process Pam... to try IS success, that's all. The outcome isn't important. Psychological studies show that praise for results (in children) is actually at least as harming as criticism, so don't you pay any attention to either. It's the doing that matters.

Thanks Carolyn that's the most inventive compliment I've had today :)

Mark, I'm a teacher of kids with learning and behavior disorders, and I wholeheartedly agree with your statement about praise and criticism. I also think this piece is amazing!
