Been at it all week…

So a long hiatus, but I have a good excuse..err.. reason. I started to teach a couple of classes and there is nothing like that to give your skill set a workout! Since they are drawing and painting, I will post a couple of each. Here is a starter, thanks and welcome to the new followers and thanks again to my old friends ­čÖé

back to the easel

After teaching kids how to draw and paint this summer, I am back in the studio. I demo’d how to draw Spidey about 100 times! I got them started by teaching them how to draw everything from “Hockey” (she meant Hawkeye), ┬áRapunzel, and my favorite, the Flying Uni-Panda (this is a thing now) . I learned Snoopy had a girlfriend (!!) named Fifi and ┬ádrew her a few times. As they head back to school this week, my young artists have learned a lot and even got to use “REAL artist” materials. Here are my two finished paintings from my first week back at “my real job”.

Morning of the Third Day, oil, 10 x 20″

Webcrawler, acrylic, ┬á12x 24″

Weekly Painting Week 97 What style do you paint?

Got busy and finished three this week, so the pressure is on for next week! Very different works. I am usually stuck when I am asked what style I paint in– I think if an artist has just one, she might consider branching out. So here are three.┬áetch2

“Etch” 24 x 36″, acrylic, alcohol and water on canvas

“Rise” 30 x 30, oil on canvas

nofate

“No fate but what we make” 18 x 24″ oil on canvas

Weekly Painting Week 95 She Gives Me Trouble…

She really does. My goal was to paint a simple scene and this girl is messing with my chi! I will keep on working this one…as I have time and patience.┬átrouble

Weekly Painting Week 94 ATAT gathering

ok that is just the working title.. square canvases are challenging, this one started out as a landscape and was a bit too empty.┬áNow it is a horse painting, going to finish this up as soon as it sets up a little- I used a combination of gamsol and linseed, very nice result. More horses but looks a little like a gathering of ATATs, doesn’t it? 36 x 36″ my sneaker in the frame gives it some scale!┬áhorsesrough
