Drawing a Figure With No Teeth
Well, crap. I don't mind the procedure although I hate like crazy how much it is going to cost to get an implant. What really bothers me is just the whole stigma of losing a tooth (like I am a hillbilly!) coupled with the notion that perhaps I am wearing out.
Happily, my dentist swears my jaw bone is very healthy and dense and should be fine. The front roots were curved in like j's and it took him awhile to drill 'em out. The bone around the back roots was gone. Don't want that happening to the rest of my jaw, for sure. Sore mouth, afterwards, but the crater isn't bothering me nearly as much as I expected. I hope by tomorrow that I won't be looking for that next painkiller.
So I went to art class this morning and we did a figure drawing. This is the model:
This is my rendition:
I don't think I will get a good grade on it, or that I deserve one. The skirt looks too flouncy. I would have stayed longer to work on it but with Husband out of town, I needed to get back home and let the girls out.
I was going to go write about the "shelter in place" drill we did (which took up a lot of our drawing time), but Husband's plane is now flying inside of Oklahoma and should be at the airport by the time I round of the girls and drive over there.
