Ahhhh....as much as I love the holidays it’s always nice to just relish the calm and quiet that is winter AFTER all of that chaos. Time to settle in with warm socks (with stripes!), a warm drink and listen to your thoughts. I don’t make resolutions but tell myself to keep trying, to keep improving, and stay on a path that will lead me to a more creative filled life.
That being said I have “resolved” myself to painting and drawing more. And not just more, but concentrating on getting better at drawing the human face as well as anatomy, and focusing on styles, color and balance, in particular when it comes to painting. I would like to have a show -gallery yes!- at some point this year. So, I have 2 specific routes I want to take- finish the 15 or so paintings that have gone through many (oh so many!) layers and finish (start) the drawing/collage project that has been sitting in my head for far too long.
Here are 2 of the paintings that I have completed or are near completion:
Some of these drawings will be used in the project:
I’ve posted progress of these and more on Instagram and FB so please feel free to follow me for more updates. As always, comments and thoughts are always appreciated. I love to discuss and make new friends ;o).
