The first one is of the corner church that I pass every time I go the back way into Jackson. It is on the corner of Cooper and Zion.
|The perspective to the right is not quite right, but other than that I like it.|
The other sketch is from an old jewelry ad with a very young Liz Taylor as the model. She is wearing one of her pieces that is now on exhibit.
Today I am working on a sketch of a Polish woman from a remote village that Nina Camic posted on her blog. If you don't know Nina you should definitely check out her blog. She lives in Madison, WI, and is a law professor. She does a fair bit of traveling - to Asia, northern France, Spain, to do a short teaching stint to an African village, and to Poland, her homeland. Her blog is called "The Other Side of the Ocean". Most of the blogs to which I subscribe belong to artists, and Nina is an artist of sorts. She is very good at the art of narration. She tells a captive story and accompanies each one with really nice photographs. You really should go check out her blog.
I will share the sketch with you tomorrow. For now I have to get in the shower as Miss M was delivered about an hour ago and I have to take her to preschool in about 45 minutes.
I'm getting very close to 75,000 visitors and when I get there I am planning to have some kind of giveaway - I don't know what it will be yet, but I am thinking about it. Stay tuned for more information.
I also hope to finish up the Adirondack chairs background and get it framed for hanging. I will share that stage with you when I get there.
I hope you are making time for yourself today and that you enjoy my humble attempts at sketching.
