I just got my copy on David's DVD today and can't wait to see it. I love his drawings and I hope I learn a lot from this DVD. The DVD is "Drawing Closer to Life", and that's my goal. I like to draw people doing what they enjoy doing.
I was looking at the website and realized that I really need to get some photos up of my more recent work. I'll have to take the camera in and do some photos of my color pencil work and some other stuff.
My Sunday morning ride in Houston County, TN. This place is a
Plein Air Painter's Paradise with its hills, creeks, barns and wild life. It is just sooo green here. Here are some more pics.
Anyone using a hanging system in their studio? I need to get some ideas or company names so I can order something. I wanted to use crown molding and hang a hook or wire from it. I don't know what would be best. If you can help please let me know as a
The studio took on a whole new look today. The track lights are up thanks to my husband. Through the years his has put up so many track lights for me. Even when I was a teacher in public school. I did take pictures with the phone and I'll post them tomorrow. I will be working on a hanging system tomorrow. While the lights were being put up, I did do some drawing. I love to draw.
I bought my track lights today and started installing them. I think they are going to look great, I just hope they do the job. I also got a stamp to stamp the backs of the note cards and some magnets. I checked into a sign for my windows and the computer froze up of them. It will take I might just paint my sign myself. Tomorrow, I'll be in the studio working on the lights, advertising and I might get to draw a little too.
My new business cards came in today with the Erin Tennessee information on them. Erin is so small that I plan to go to all the businesses in town and introduce myself to them. I can now hand them a card, and I plan to give them one of my note cards too. By the way, the UPS came up to my new house that sits in the middle of no where to deliver the cards. I was thinking they might not deliver to me and I'd have to make other arrangments. I hope to get to
I hope to get to the studio tomorrow, but I have to take the car in for repairs. Who knows when I'll get back????
It wasn't all work today, we had fun at the studio.
Today my granddaughter modeled for me. In front of the camera she
was wonderful. But getting her to sit still so I could draw her was another
story. She wouldn't be still. I'm glad she came so I could get some photos and
it's always good to work on my drawing skills. When I looked at the photos
tonight, she looks so much like me at that age. I knew she favored me, but I did
not know just how much. It was a GREAT Day in the Studio.
Between shots and still smiling.
My Granddaughter was so sweet to help me out. She posed in different outfits, in different areas of the studio and yet she kept smiling. And, it was a little warm working up there in the studio. I did get some really good shots and I can't wait to get started working on the new series.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
