    Wonderful cropping of the subject. The spattering adds a delicious rhythm to the focal points and really tickles the eye. Do I detect pen rather than pencil in the drawing? It, too, adds a fresh graphic quality to the image. I look at this, being surrounded by 3 feet of VT snow on the ground, and can really think SPRING. THANK YOU!


    • Hi Jeff,
      We all need a taste of spring, don’t we? Yes, that is a Micron pen that I used instead of a pencil. When I don’t have a lot of time I sometimes do that. It is a little warmer here today. Hope it is in Vermont too.


  3. Hello Shari,
    could you please tell me if I can participate from here in France?
