The seniors from a Jesuit Prep School in Indianapolis went formal for their prom. The Marriott’s third floor ballroom was happily swarming with ladies in flowing soft gowns and gentlemen in tuxes: a movie set, really.  As you can see, the lights were way down, but the very first person who sat for me pulled out a phone to add dramatic lighting to the scene.  So clever and that became standard practice the whole evening.

What a treat for me to be able to draw these beaming faces!

Thank you, Jamie!

I drew fifty-two people in four hours, all full body, of course.  That’s a pretty clipping rate, considering that there was time out for moving the set-up from the cocktail lounge (ha, soft drinks only) to the grand ball room and later,  time out for speeches.

There must have been some sore feet by the end of the evening, what with those ridiculous platform sandals. But clearly everybody had a blast.  Look at these radiant faces!

Here’s a small selection. It’s hard to choose.
