some fantastic artwork

Angela

This was Angela’s first time modeling, she has been my friend for years. I was surprised when she agreed to model because she is such a quiet modest person. I used a calligraphy pen to do the detail in her face in the sketch above, it looks so much like her, I should have done that with the painting below. The small painting below is done in ink and gouache. I used the big red pillow and boyfriend pillow in this set up again. I think this is the best painting of the boyfriend pillows so far. This one is 5 X 7, so it’s like the size of a photograph, I just bought some small brushes and it’s been fun creating small detail. I had just been painting with large brushes with large quick movements. This coming Tuesday, I’m going back to large brushes and few details. I’m trying out a new idea inspired by Schwa. Hopefully in a few weeks, I’ll be painting a poet I’ve been e-mailing. I’m really trying to build an eclectic group of artists.

My two paintings, Tuesday with Doug and Venus are now hanging over at the North Penn Frame Shop on Broad street in Lansdale. I didn’t win any awards in the show but it’s nice to have my paintings all framed up for the public to see.

    Amy, I have two pieces of Digital art at that show too.
    I’m sorry I missed you at the opening.
