after a couple days in the hospital

The finished image.  May rework it some more, don't think so. 
Am home from another hospital stay, will get my strength back quickly and start working toward Saturday's show.  Am hoping I am not going to be disappointed in it.  Whoops, this is not finished image.  Let me try again.

A couple of drawings

These are a couple of drawings I did this week, will attempt to finish the 2nd on on paper, and hopefully project the 1st one to canvas.  It is Thanks giving evening and am so grateful for the time to do my art.  I am blessed for sure.

First Attempt

This is the original drawing which I have saved, below is the finished piece on 22 x 28" canvas.  I project my original image and can save the drawing this way.  I have also projected it on a smaller canvas which I will paint later.  I think this is successful.

A Couple of Quick Sketches

These are a couple of quick sketches from model classes from today and yesterday.  I have been busy painting on canvas an image that I projected from a piece of sketchpaper.  This is more or less an experiement , trying to use my images on canvas, rather than on paper all the time.  I don't know that I will project either of these images.  I tried to do an interesting background before drawing the male model.  I will continue to try this method of working and see what happens.  I am trying tonite to get some pieces together for the Tomball Art Walk on the 19th.  I will be going to the Art Crawl downtown, but agreed to put pieces in Karen Foxworthy's shop, as an image of mine is her logo for the store.  Busy time in a busy time of year.

3rd Place

Have been in Austin getting my leftover work from Dragonfly gallery, and just got home this evening.  There was a message that this piece got 3rd place at the Houston Watercolor Show today.  It was an experimental show, didn't even know it.  Was pleased with the honor.
