"Crones" series... (crone=friend)...and what I have discovered is that I will never be a portrait artist! I am attempting to do representational paintings of friends but none of them have been -spot on-....oh well, it is good practice and each week the class I am taking gives us a different approach/technique to use...so like medicine-it is good for me. I actually enjoy doing these, I just get frustrated when I can't get them exactly accurate...but of course being me, I only give it one shot instead of persisting until I am satisfied...onward

My next series is going to be a spiritual woman series and I am planning on it being much more textural and loose. In a creative trip one never knows where life will take them, but I have to say that the journey so far has been a great ride! The portraits I have been doing of friends, I will continue to do as they are good technical practice for me.
Hang in there with me and thanks for viewing my blog and following my path of creativity with me. I am solitary in my studio pretty much and your viewing my ramblings means a lot to me. di

Only 48 more portraits to go in the online class I am taking. This week we were suppose to practice glazing for fun on a drawing of a face. I, of course, have to make life difficult and decided to do the faces of friends (with no guarantees it will look like them). I massively overworked this piece but next week will be better. It is not terrible and does have a resemblance to her. I am calling this one "K", as her first name begins with K. For the rest of the week I am working on a 3'x4' piece for the Village show. Will show that as I get further along. TaTa .....
