This ought to be my theme song:

How're ya gonna keep them down on the farm
After they've seen Paree Montreal....
Alas, I've been left Ruthless as of last Friday. And since I've been tied up with a bunch of boring stuff since then, and since I have a pile of more finished stuff to work on, I thought I would spend a bit of time doing a little capriccio  to remind myself what delightful summer it was working with Ruth.

This is based on several quick charcoal drawings I did of Ruth towards the end of the summer. It's smallish (10"x30", approximately), pastel and conte on Rives BFK.

If I take it to something more formal I'll have to find a way to work Billy (who has also taken off to greener pastures, but in B.C.) and Shorty into it....
