Singing Sisters of SCA

You folks of a Certain Age...you know who you are...remember a big hit song sung by "The Singing Nun." It was internationally popular and went like this: "Domineeek - aneek - aneek..." You might have even sung that song in summer camp. The year was 1962. The Singing Nun's artist name was "Soeur Sourire," or "Sister Smile," but in reality she had a rather tragic life, as the Wikipedia article shows us.

Well anyway the image for today's entry doesn't have anything to do with singing nuns. This robed pair are performers at a Society for Creative Anachronism event. They are modern people dressed in neo-medieval garb. This is one of a series of pencil sketches I did at this event. 

Pencil on sketchbook page, 8" x 5", early 1980s.
