More Hands Helping Hands

Sketching at my desk is comfortable.  These are in the BookFactory Sketchbook with an Ohuhu .2 pen.  We have drawn lots of hands so you could probably recognize these as my hand.

These are for the new Scavenger Hunt from Life 93

Number 1, fist and number 2, open hand.

You may have noticed some links on the sidebar to My Fine Art Friends.  We got together many years ago to help and critique each other.  After a while we drifted off to our own interests.  We have stayed in touch and I have valued their friendships and help.  

Recently I heard that Belinda Lindhardt in Australia had a horrible life experience.  In June her home burned with Belinda and children there.  There were injuries but not life threatening.  A GoFund Me was started and I had to help.  If you don't know our home burned in the big Bastrop fire in 2011, so I can sympathize.  We were fortunate to be gone at the time so did not have the mental anguish of trying to get out.  I cannot imagine.  Anyway if you care to check it out it is:

Good sketches of your hand.

Sorry to hear about the fire your friend and her family had. Being there at the time must have been awful. I hope they are doing OK.
