About half way through during the Friday evening quick drawing session at the Palette and Chisel, Candice couldn't quite come up with her next pose(model's block?). After thinking about for a few seconds how she would pose next, she decided to settle with the universal gesture of indecision and predicament that she was in then and there—her toe tapping and her finger in the mouth. It must be quite awkward, if not embarrassing, for a model not to be able to come up with a pose while standing on an elevated platform, surrounded by a room full of expectant crowd 360° around.
