since i have embraced the fact that
i love painting faces, i have been drawing
and painting so much more.
this is one of my quick daily starbucks drawings
with black and brown stabilo pencils and water added.
when his pencil hits water, it becomes like very
pigmented ink or watercolor. i love using it! in many ways!
i was drawn to this hostess at a restaurant,
vera. when leaving, i gathered up the nerve
i told her i was an artist. my friend suggested
i show her my drawings. i showed her a few
in my sketchbook. i asked if i could take her
photo so that i might draw her.
this is a painting that i did in 2016
i liked but didn't love it.
i reworked it, adding two more faces.
now i love it.
and i painted this starting from a reference
image of four of my friends. then the
painting became its own version.
both are acrylic, stabile and gesso.
when i look back at a week's worth of photos
in my iphoto library, it feels like i have done a lot
but on a day to day basis, it's just a moment at a time.
next week i am heading to whidbey island to participate
in a 3 day workshop led by john arbuckle and brian kasstle.
i went last year and had a ball. I am looking forward
to the same this year. i will probably not post friday
unless i figure out how to post when i am not at my
computer. hopefully i will saturday.
thank you for visiting me today!
i post my art daily on instaagram.
i find it a simple and compelling
site with a supportive community of artists.
posting with paint party friday hosted
weekly by kristen and eva.
