Making Time

October 29, 2016

It was very hard to drag myself across the parking lot with a pile of supplies to paint with Bob Collins on Thursday night...... I had been working since 9:30 non-stop and it was now 7:00 p.m.  But, we had a model and no students AND I had just blogged about how we need to make time for our art.  So I did it!!  I went over and painted for two hours and it went by in a moment.  It was fabulous fun!!

     I hadn't worked with a model in at least a year, probably more and I just felt a bit blank on what I wanted to do.  I have seen other artists working abstractly with the figure and I thought I would like to give that a try.  As many of you may know I like to play with color a bit, however when I grabbed my paint I hadn't brought much.  So, I decided to work with the primaries and white.  I found abstracting the model much harder than it looks:)  As most things with art.  Here is the result.  Let me know what you think.


More than anything, it felt great to be painting and creating.  I think this week it would be awesome if we all tried to encourage each other to fit in some time to create art.  We certainly could all use a little more happiness:)
