Facing the Facts

Okay... I am not a total slacker! Summer is such a crazy time. Every day I think I will get a chance to paint, and then so many things come up. This week, however, the business should level out.

In the midst of preparing for the Artisan Gallery grand opening I was able to get a few painting sessions in. I am also working on a commission piece that has taken far more prep work than I anticipated. So there has been a lot of hours going on behind the scenes.

Enough of the excuses. Here is two sessions worth of work on his face. I'm really pleased with what I have so far. Obviously there is more to be done, but I think that the features and expression are coming through accurately. So stay tuned and there will be more to see this week!

Beginning Guitar 101

I've blocked in the guitar. So far so good. I love the woodgrain in the face of the guitar. That probably won't change much. The rest will evolve quite a bit. I can't wait to put all the reflections in the side of the guitar! There is so much information to go there. It will be a blast. More guitar to come...

Feeling Blue

I've blocked in his shirt. I'm playing with the three tones of blue in the calendar, computer and shirt. So far I'm okay with it. The pics a little blurry, but I think you can see the beginning of the fabric developing. I love painting fabric!

In the Beginning...

The background came in really quickly. I edited out quite a bit of detail in order to keep it very simple and straightforward... one major difference between men and women ; )

I started my series based on the works of Mary Cassatt. As an extension of this series I have decided to compliment the women in the series with men. The men will be in similar scenarios, but not necessarily in similar scenes.

So here's the first of the men in my series...

I LOVE making art! I have also been doing some printmaking. You'll be seeing some of that soon as well.

Believe it or not, I can actually draw.
