Today, I've been working on a larger painting for the annual "One Peek" Show here at the StutzArtSpace.
We, the Stutz Artists, have a huge open house every year, the last weekend in April. This year I believe is our 18th, and it's my fourth. Wow, time does fly doesn't it? Here is my larger painting:
"Center of Attention", it is 20"x20" oil on canvas... it is a Makers Mark Manhattan from the Snooty Fox... at least, that is where the inspiration for this painting came from!!

This was a really quick painting... I just had to paint, I've been away too long, sooo... I did a "Nike" and just did it!!
Hi! Sorry I've been away for a while....whew, been busy with paper work and still don't have my tax stuff ready! Oh, sorry to bring up my personal life... TMI!!!

Translating graphite (or pencil) to paint is a bit different and harder than straight pencil drawings.
Color is the challenge. Challenge is good.
I cut the top of her head (hair) off too, but I think with more time and practice. If you're game, I'm game.
Maybe I should use more black (there is no black in this painting) like Bernard Buffet.

The workshop was one of the best I've attended. Katherine Hilden was phenomenal! And fun.
Great personality and very knowledgeable artist.
Now all I need to do is practice!! Yea!

Pretty rough painting... I decided to leave the bottom rough or sort of unfinished like, because I'm happy with the face and well.... sometimes... you have to stop! I mean sometimes, I have to stop!
Thanks for stopping by... : )
