Now I'm home and pretty well recovered so I took some time for art even though my grandson had 2 friends over for a sleepover last night. He came to me yesterday and thanked me for making all those play dates. What a sweetie!
The fun, collage and painted rhino was my first "painting" in a while. Took some time to get the colors right - I wish I painted animals that people actually had as pets. No one has ever asked me to paint their pet rhino! For some reason, they just call out to me. And they are horribly endangered animals.
Practicing a bit on faces. I take the worst selfies in the world - not a technical problem but a facial one. There are many things wrong with this attempt - but the scary thing is it looks better than the photo. Apparently my nose is growing and my face is shrinking - so soon when you look at me you will only see a nose! This pose had my face tilted slightly downward - so my nose looks even bigger - LOL
Anyway - good to get into my studio again. I will be sharing this work on Paint Party Friday. It's astonishing to me that I haven't even posted here since May 1st. April and May were not good months. But I am glad to be back and hope I can continue to get some studio time. I really missed painting. Thanks for visiting here - and go take a fun trip over to Paint Party Friday to check out all the beautiful work. It's in it's 5th year now due to the hard work of Eva and Kristin who run the site.
