I really like this one. It does not feel stiff. Well, today and tomorrow then high school is out for the summer. I am ready for some time with the dogs and the garden. My summer goal is to work on painting corrections and of course my directed study with Gill Dellinger in pastels. I think I will learn a lot. I have to remember that an unfinished painting is not precious. Until it is finished it is just an unfinished painting. Here the reds are brought up on the toes, knee, elbow, shoulder and ear. These are areas where the blood is close to the surface of the skin so they feel more red. Enjoy the moment!
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
