OK it's official, this forces me to get off my carcass and get to work.  I am actually finishing up the design for my art desk to share with someone who wants to build one like it.  After this is out of the way then I will be finishing my new carved cane then I have four drawings already laid out that I will be working on.  Sooooo, got to get back in step so I'm not so jealous of your skills.

Which have become unbelievable.  Waaaah! CURSE YOU! :happybounce: :happybounce: :happybounce:

Thank you very much, Ken.  Your art desk looks very good indeed.  I used to do a good bit of my drawing on the floor, but it hurt my elbow and hip, even recently with using a cushion, so I now use the dining table.  This has poor natural light and the room light is overhead and so reflects from my drawing!

I purchased a natural daylight lamp that has a flexible stem and a heavy base which allows me to draw even at night, well worth the investment.  Now to put it to more use.
