My Fall/Winter Workload:
|Steve and Zac , oil on canvas, 9 x 11|
It is an afternoon away from "done and move on."
|I've Gotta Crow has to be painted. I like the composition|
of this charcoal. JD's pose could be any twelve year old boy. They
are full life and not so full of themselves as they like to pretend.
|And We, me, wants to do this one. After the cat.|
My granddaughter nixed the four-in-one portrait of herself. She thought it might look like she was too full of herself; she wanted a portrait of her cat, Mr. Fuz Zy Pants. I'm on it; she had a point. I'm not a cat person. I AM, however, a Taylor person. So I did chose a reference photo from one of her FB albums that has her in it. Now we'll both be happy.
|I can tolerate cats when my GD is in the picture.|

My dance card for the Fall and Winter season is filled : Steve and Zac; My Guys; I've Gotta Crow (JD); and We. Very ambitious. Maybe overly so? Nevertheless, that load, and maybe a pastry or two thrown in for fun, should keep me happily busy till Spring.
I think I'm out of my mind. An old broad with pipe dreams. But portraiture keeps me thinking; keeps me intrigued; keeps me eager to go down to the studio--indeed, wakes me up in the morning. I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but I'm
really enjoying the meal.
I saw Mary Martin in Peter Pan on the stage. I was immediately flown away to Neverland with Peter. A cherished, specially guarded part of me still lives there. It's the part of me that paints pastries.
