No pictures to post but good news, today was my last day to do my long-term sub job. The children came in with flowers and another mom brought some more flowers and a nice vase. I felt like "Queen for a Day"! ( I am really dating myself!) I am rushing to pack the car before the storms hit but the beer is in and that is most important! Off to my antiquing junket I take twice a year. Good pictures of bluebonnets on the way home. Can't wait to return to REALLY rest and get back into my painting.
This little fellow is my neighbor's grandson. The picture she gave me was sepia so I had no clue as to his coloring except he had blonde hair and blue eyes. This was kind of an experiment but even though I love it , I don't think she will so I'll probably do another in color for her. It was very good for me to stretch myself and play with monochromatic colors. I worked on him most of the day and feel pleased with the results. Very soft, yet striking.
Thank you for looking at my blog. Had the studio all to myself ALL day. My fellow painters went to Fort Worth to the Kimball Art Museum and never came back to paint.
I got Sharon finished and even hung her on the wall. It was fun but a little solitary down there all day.
In the two days that I have been off for Spring Break I have been able to do this rough painting of Sharn Hodges and her sidekick, the big brown dog, Georgia Brown. Sharon is much more beautiful than this and I still have work to do and more to add to the picture but this is a pretty good beginning. I think Georgia looks pretty good but we'll see.
I was born in Dallas, Texas quite a while ago. Went to school in Dallas and college in Denver,Colo. Now I live in Highland Park, a small suburb of Dallas.
I worked for DISD for 30 years and now I'm starting my second profession. Started this blog to showcase some of my paintings and hear from others. Especially those who like what they see!
