Gabby sits for a caricature during last Saturday’s Winterfest in Blowing Rock. I had an inkling the line would be long (a shade under 90 minutes), but I couldn’t brush it aside. The artist, Shelly, was working sans fee, which was great since I had no monet. She drew quite the crowd. My memory is sketchy, but it seems she needed just five minutes to etch a kid to canvas. I shadowed Shelly as she traced Gabrielle, who sat smiling and still. The draft met with high marks. We’re just not sure where it’s gonna gogh.
