Michelle the Dancer

The lovely woman who teaches expressive dance classes was our model last week. I did not feel there was enough time to portray the her beauty, both within and without, but liked this last best. Funny thing, the paper seemed more textured than others in my tablet. Later I realized I was using the back of the tablet cover, not the nice drawing paper!

Another life drawing class. Another fabulous model. We again did several gestual sketches. My sister said she stopped by and no one even noticed she was there! That is serious drawing!

Cope Conifer

Yesterday, even though it was pouring down rain, it was warm (50 0r s0). I wanted to paint outside. I put up my extra large umbrella to cover my paint box and self. Only a little rain dripped in. This pine, that grows outside my aunt's picture window is a refuge for the many varieties of birds that feed in her feeder. Funny thing, not many came around while I stood there painting!

558 East

Even though the winter colors appear drab at first glance, once an artist begins to look the color seems to appear. In this case the sun began to set in the west touching the trees and dry weeds with color.

Lezlie Wrapped

Judy drew a spectacular piece of art last night. The drawing below is mine. I worked on several, but this is the best. Lezlie gave us some intriguing poses. Hope she will sit for us again

Judy's Husband John

Judy has taken several of my classes and has become a good friend. John kindly possed for us in one class. He was not expecting to enjoy it, but did and may pose with his bike another time.
