I should probably call this 'can you figure out what this is?' - a sort of shorthand, I guess. I know how it should end, and I'm very hopeful, but the best intentions don't always turn out as one would like. So I'm fully prepared, knowing it may join lots of others I've thrown in the garbage this week. I find it hard to get rid of things that I once liked or maybe even just liked one passage in the painting, and keep them well past their prime. Gotta be tough, I keep telling myself. Thanks for stopping by and listening to my little rant or maybe it was a pep talk to myself.
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
