Yesterday was my birthday, so I planned a field trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Greek and Roman sculpture gallery with my students of Beginning Drawing. It was a wonderful day with perfect (but quickly-changing) light, and the students were happy, and we had a lovely time. Here is my drawing of the Bearded Herakles. I think I will need his strength and courage in the coming year.
