LifePainting20022012

This is a collection of some of my favorite nude sketches primarily from life drawing groups, in particular my Wednesday night group.  The one exception is a seven hour pastel drawing done from life (yup, my model and dear friend stayed in the bathtub for two sessions of four and three hours!).  The sizes of paper and board vary from  12″ x 12″ to 22″ x 30″.  It is available from Blurb.com.

Comrades: Apples and Trees

My mom sent this to me for my birthday, which isn’t until the sixth of September, so I was quite surprised to get the envelope today, and even more surprised to open it.  My mom always says we didn’t get our artistic talents from her, but she’s wrong.  What is it they say about apples falling close to the tree?
