Telephone Ladies

I have been doing several drawings from some old photographs of a group of women who were telephone operators. They may turn into paintings... but with the thick brush tip pen I used, I thought it best to keep their faces blank for now. Gave me an idea to do a series of work based on gossip and how it can seem harmless but turn into something more...
Have a great holiday weekend and soak up as much summer and sunshine you possibly can!! :)

oh, Brenda, this is wonderful - it is so strongly
'female' - that bit of herd mentality

Hi Beth,
Thanks - I got 'em at an estate sale... a wonderful find, all kept in a scrapbook.

Hello Jeane,
Thank you... love that expression 'herd mentality'. Hope you're doing well with your mom and all.
