This is my latest left-handed (non-dominant) drawing. The difference is it was ALL drawn with my left hand. My right hand only got to erase a few lines here and there.
Funny thing, when I draw with my left hand, my annoying inner critic is silent. LOVE that!
Dorthea Lange is the American photographer famous for capturing the Great Depression. Most people would recognize the unforgettable photo, Migrant Mother.

As an artist, I don't think I am suppose to do that. (shhhh)
That is why I will be keeping this one.

My favorite line so far:
He closed his eyes, satisfied. Everything was all right when he understood it.
