Untitled

I should name this woman Irene because I started painting her last Saturday during the hurricane. But she does not look like an Irene. So if you have any names for her just let me know as she cannot remain nameless for too long! Robyn had been painting her and she so kindly gave me a picture that I could paint her too. Thanks Robyn!

Painting the scarf was so much fun. I used gesso under the paint to get some of the texture. I really enjoyed all the colors, folds, directions, values, intensities and movement of it.

I'm getting ready for two important things right now. Work wise it's September and I need to plan new classes and get back into teaching mode. I'm going to be teaching six to seven classes a week. Then fun wise my daughter Kim from California is coming for a two week visit to the East Coast. It will be so nice to get to spend time with her and her beau Bryant. I can hardly wait.
