Figure, Short Session

Tonight was a short session, my day was not planned well and a nap after work left with only a half hour of painting at night. So, not much has changed on this painting from yesterday but I’m moving forward with it, slowly.

My in-laws are in town also and we have such a great time that honestly it means more to me to spend time with them than do two and a half hours of art tonight. The good news is that I think I have a clear idea of what I want to focus on moving forward and it’s based on two artists that I have always loved, Andrew Wyeth and Edward Hopper.

My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
