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?

Okay – this is a pencil drawing, not technically a painting. It’s my day 10 of the #30paintingsin30days anyway. This is another clarinet piece – Octave. I love the face singing “ooh”- I think the clarinet is a singing instrument.
