I did something yesterday that I haven't done in, oh, a couple of YEARS. That's painted from a live model. Which artists should do all the time but in reality we don't. Or I don't. I talked to Sarah 2 1/2 years ago about sitting for me. Ughhhhhh, two and a half years! I don't know what happens to time. Anyway, she helped with the weddings, (actually she is my son-in-law's sister, she was in one of the weddings) and we talked about actually having her come to my studio. We set the appointment, again, and I still almost cancelled. But, I didn't. And here is about a little over an hour's worth of time.
I almost didn't post these for several reasons, 1) because I am embarrassingly rusty, 2) because it doesn't do Sarah justice 3) because I struggled so much that I didn't catch her essence and 4) because I am embarrassingly rusty. Grrrrr
But, I did it. And I finally kept my 2 1/2 year appointment. I think I still have another 2 1/2 year appointment to fulfill. I told her brother at the same time I'd like to paint a study of him too. Well, he's in the family now so I better make good.
The upside is Sarah is scheduled to come back next Wednesday. Any other takers to be a live model and keep me going?
