Saturday Studio Time

IMG_3794

Having some fun in the studio this morning. I am working on this VW series. I do not have a personal relationship to these cars but always loved their look. Any good Bug or Bus stories to share?

It has been a while…

I have not been posting here on my blog much. I have been busy and have been active on instagram.   (Feel free to follow me there)  I am still trying to figure out which venue is best suited to me. Here’s a few paintings that I have worked on lately:

 

As I see these all together, the common thread is how much I enjoy the various subjects. From that quirky Centennial Bulb to my nail polish addiction, it brings me joy to work on these paintings.

I will be making some prints from these paintings. Do you have a favorite painting from these? Let me know which one in the comment here or on Facebook.

Rock those glasses!

I’m taking a portrait class (Drawing Faces – Make Art that Sells) and I am totally having fun. I am focusing on my favorite “four eyes.”

During elementary school, I was fairly obsessed by Elton John. His music spoke to me. It was always entertaining to see what outfits he was wearing.  I still listen to a Spotify playlist of my favorite Elton John songs, mostly from this period.

During High School, I started my next obsessions – David Bowie and Elvis Costello, both of which still melt my heart, some 30-plus years later. I can say that I do not think more than a week goes by without me listening to their music. It is still so fresh and enjoyable and I am so stoked when my daughter admits to liking their songs.

So here’s my first drawing faces subjects – Elton and Elvis who definitely rocked those glasses! (I’m sure that I will include a Bowie in this class soon enough!)

Do you have a favorite Elton, Elvis or Bowie song or memory?
