some quick sketches from this week

I have a new favorite drawing tool, it is watersoluble carbon square by ArtGraf.  It is great for putting in some really dark darks .  I use that as well as watersoluble graphite stick, again by ArtGraf.  Fabulous.

Had a great time at Wenmohs Ranch this Week.  What a fabulous group of artists.
They are having an art show this weekend and next.  Think someone said there would be 300 pieces
for sale.  I put 4 pieces of my own in there.

Finally Up

This commission piece for the airport is 12 feet wide and 5 feet tall.  I started it in November, and they decided to hang it in the Black Walnut Cafe at the Executive Airport in Conroe.  They picked it up 2 weeks ago, and was waiting patiently for the finished product, wanted to know how they were going to hang it on that block paneling they have, looks liek they changed it.  Very exciting for me.

Cute model

Had a cute model named Jazzlyn today, she's only 18 years old but knows how to move it around.  Maybe I can do a real painting, these are just 20 minute sketches.  I always have to work harder to do black skin.  Not sure I accomplished that at all.

Cold weather, good painting

My huge project has not been hung as yet, so am treading water waiting.  In the meantime, I am trying to get some other work done.  This cold weather is great for staying indoors and painting.  .

Had a great time

I had so much fun teaching in sugarland last weekend.  However, I did not take time to photo all of the wonderful work.  They have many very talented artists and was dismayed to find out I didn't take photos of all of it.  Must have been the hour drive to and from that made me a little brain-dead.

Outstanding model

Tried to get Josianne for my Sugarland class tomorrow, she was booked.  She is a great model and great person as well.  My camera is about shot, will get another one, as I cannot even photo my stuff very well anymore.

Ahhh..holidays over, back to what I love

Finally the model sessions are back, seems like forever.  I have spent the entire holiday working on my 12 foot project, am so glad to get back to what I love.  I probably have a week left of work on the large project, in the mean time back to model sessions.  
Feel so good to be back to my normal routine.

Fairy Model

An artist friend of mine, Annette Palmer has a teenage daughter named Faith.  She is the ultimate fairy model.    This is #3, she just charms me.
