I went to my first figure session at South Arts Pittsburgh where I will teach a palette knife painting class on August 22. I haven't drawn live figures since college. It takes practice to do these 15 min. poses. The evening flies by!
I am really going to miss this one. I went to Provincetown last August and took many photos of this very beautiful spot from a sunset sailboat cruise. I have never felt my photos of the two companion pieces did them justice. The originals make me very, very happy, both for the memories and my style of painting. Mmmmm. Both have sold now and are in happy homes. Sadly, at this point we don't have plans to go back to Ptown this Summer, but next year for sure! Mark my words.
