September Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Kelly in Warm Colors

This sketch is a sweet memory, still one of my favorites, and one through which I still feel a deep bond with Kelly. The sketch is from April 17, 2012, and the light is coming around to that angle now as the daylight approaches the same position a few weeks before the autumnal equinox as […]
