|"Cindy," 100 Faces in 100 Days, Day Four, 12"h x 12"w, oil on panel|
This is another one that I painted and worked on a bit after our session. We talked and laughed enough during the session, I just couldn't "commit" to Cindy's mouth. A serious expression wouldn't do. So, here it is. A good depiction of today's visit.
|Not like you can tell, but this is me painting Cindy. Time to straighten up the studio.|
Second, Cindy and I sat down for a snack after the painting session and I put placemats on the table. Cindy was examining them carefully. They were quilted! My observation: artists look at everything in the world with such a different eye. It's just that much more fascinating. When was the last time you looked at the stitching on a placemat?
Read more about my project on earlier posts. (I also just added a page to my web site about it ... which I'll update from time to time with new faces and info. See a link from my home page.) Still looking for plenty of volunteers. Interested? Email me. Also, my classes (portrait and still life) start this coming Monday and Tuesday, January 10 & 11. See more info on my web site, classes page.
