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),  Rapunzel, and my favorite, the Flying Uni-Panda (this is a thing now) . I learned Snoopy had a girlfriend (!!) named Fifi and  drew 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,  12x 24″

Weekly Painting Week 66- Because you can’t take yourself too seriously Spiderman as a youth

Sometimes art is heavy, filled with angst.

(Sidebar, remember that great Sparks song, Angst in My Pants? here’s a link:

So, you have to lighten things up and have fun doing this- here is this week’s post, Spidey as a kid. 12 x 24, acrylic on canvas. A great way to make the red pop out, mix some green in the grey background. spidey2
