Linda has 3 huge tall sunflowers growing;
reaching towards the sky. They are so dramatic
at dusk and they have been calling me to paint
them. I was painting this when the 5.9 earthquake hit!
I found myself rocking in my chair with my brush
dancing across the flower!
Today an earthquake and Hurricane Irene on the weekend.
We are scheduled to be in Norfolk, VA. I say rain or shine
but take exception to hurricanes! So the show is currently
up in the air.
Below is my latest statuary painting. This is a request
from Linda and she is making sure I get the "look" she
wanted. So I am treating it like a commission, but have found
I am really enjoying it. I love portraits and this is a great
substitute. I sketched it in my sketchbook and then onto my
watercolor paper. I had the face wrong the first two times.
To angular, she wanted innocent angelic...which is how
the actual sculpture is but hard to capture. Third time was the
charm. I started painting the face to make sure it was perfect
and Linda is smiling, the hardest part accomplished! I finished
the rest of the drawing and here is the first stages.
Linda has this knack of always stretching my skills.
I think you can click over it to see it better.
