When I was in art school, I had to take several life drawing classes. And like all colleges we had a few regular models. My favorite model was a college age girl named Laura.

Laura was  goth-not the 80″s black thing, by the late 90’s Renaissance kind. She frequently wore her hair braided in a crown on top of her head. She always wore at least 10-15 rings on her hands and dressed like a gypsy. She was soft-spoken and kind.

She had beautiful features and large eyes. Every time I looked at her I saw Galadriel from the Lord of the Rings. I spent the better part of two years drawing and painting her. I’m so glad that I had the chance to work with such a sweet, wonderful girl.
