VorseMayHeaton565She was an American journalist, labor activist, social critic, and novelist. I came across her recently while checking on literary publications to see what they were up to these days.

Mary Heaton Vorse, 1874-1966, has been recently rediscovered after long neglect.  So I drew her for my facefame blog. While reading about her, I found this quote from her:

“The art of writing is the art of applying the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair.”

We can substitute “drawing’ for “writing” and get:

“The art of drawing is the art of applying the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair.”

So true.  Thank you,  Ms. Vorse.
