There are so many subjects for me but yes, it's mostly the figure. So I have to say I've been stuck for awhile. I do think teaching has interfered with needed growth but it is what it is. I have needed to help more with the income with a loved one ill and insurance not covering many of the doctors. And why don't these doctors accept the Affordable Care Act Insurance. I hope for improvements. We were forced into our plan. But in the meantime and on a brighter note I have found solutions! I do a lot of work in gouache. AND my husband, Ray Roberts, and I have renewed our attendance to the Open Studio Sessions! We feel like we have a new lease on life. Painting the figure from life, there's nothing like it for us. Just free. A few examples follow.
Drawing a lot from life, I can't say enough great things about it. The lawn bowling club in Laguna Beach is great. They actually stand still for a minute or two. And they generally come back to these stances as they go back and forth.
And when there's not a figure to paint I find something at the house or on the road. Couldn't resist the beautiful day outside it was and I love my yard tools.
Hey! Thanks for following me!
Love them all. Really like the wheelbarrow and rake painting.
Teaching is a gift that not every artist posses and I appreciate all that I have learned from your art, videos and blog posts. Thank you!
