Contemplative - Part 1

I've changed how I'm doing my art and blog as I begin my 5th year as an artist. Read all about that here if you missed yesterday's post.

I had some time today to get back to a class I started taking a few weeks ago. We're working in the style of artist, Marie Laurencin. I was able to get through a few layers this morning. And, like I said in Tuesday's post, my art has to go through its "ugly" phases before I get it where I want it to be. It's a process.

First a quick sketch.

Adding some background.

Adding foreground color.
There's a lot I need to work on tomorrow. Thankfully I've learned to not beat myself up during the awkward phases of my paintings. And now for the remainder of today I'll plow through my "to do" list which includes making cookies and sewing patches on my husband's pants. Very soon his pants will all be more patch than pants. Love that he grooves on that style!

I'd love for you to share my art and blog with the links below.  Thanks!
