Death, Taxes, and a Navajo Woman

Today there was a statewide earthquake drill called, "The Great Utah Shakeout." An important thing to do in earthquake country. The intention is to educate and prepare people concerning what to do in a major earthquake. That way people won't just run around in aimless circles franticly waving their arms and screaming in terror - which also sort of describes how I do my taxes. Today is also tax day in the U.S. I wonder if there were any exercises today about how to file last minute tax returns during an earthquake? Brings to mind Benjamin Franklin's quote about death and taxes.

But to get to the image above, last Thursday a Navajo woman modeled for our weekly drawing session. This sketch was done in a 12" x 9" sketchbook with charcoal pencil. Hope it moves you, tax free!
