Queen's Gambit Accepted

Being the supportive boss and mentor that she was, MJ perused each drawing for at least 5 minutes. Carefully flipping from one page to the other, I could tell that she was enjoying every moment of it. She was smiling and asked me a lot of questions.

She reminded me of my sister when we were still small. As a toddler, she liked lying next to me on the cold floor as I drew her favorite bedtime story character. She would excitedly point with her tiny finger and say, "da tittle red hen". We've grown up now but she is still small.

"Why are all your drawings so serious?", MJ asked still looking at D7 and Royal Fork. "Because they're chess pieces who gets killed in the game", I replied. She closed my portfolio, pressed her palms gently above it and smiled at me, "I want you to draw a happy one."

  4. Bjornik, she is regal euphoria in black and white! Pure beauty, and her smile is blissfully serene. All your women are well poised, in fact, and she is no exception. The happy tulips make me smile, and I'm dying to know what's behind the door at the bottom of her skirt!

    I like her teeny tiny delicate hands. :)

    As for you dear Bella, a big hug for that inspiring message you left when I was high with turpentine. I'm still lightheaded due to lack of sleep. Btw, which hands are you referring to? You make her blush, look where her hands are right now.;) See you later!hehe
