These are the 2 drawings that I will have in theKnowlton Gallery's SKETCHBOOK SHOW, opening this coming Saturday, Dece. 4th from 1 to 4 P.M. The dog yawning is my "Rosebud", she is a sweet yellow labrador. I was having some fun with this piece and used my finger prints to put in the under values with black tempura paint, then when that dryed, I went over the top with charcoal to unify the value changes more. Chuck Close used this finger print method and I thought it would be fun to try. The "3 Geese" were out at Lodi Lake and I enjoy seeing them congregate and conversate with each other!To Go To The Knowlton Gallery Web Site, Click Here
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.
