Two-minute Mary
11/3/2006: My painting buddy Mary. I sketched her in two minutes while waiting for her husband to show up for dinner.

Painting Workshop
11/4/2006: I was in a painting workshop this weekend with Al Setton. I was taking notes when he said something that really struck me. So I did a 30-second sketch of him under the quote: “You are part of the history of art.”

Poker Night
11/5/2006: This was intended to be a picture of my husband, but the only resemblence is all the chips in front of him. He often wins despite his quote to the contrary.

(Note: This post was assembled by Mark, but the drawings and captions are by Dani.)

    OK. I googled the artist that Two-minute Mary likes. It’s Gail Pidduck, not Gail Piddick. Just in case you wanted to check out her art. Glad this is DrawMo and not SpellBetta ….

    OMG if it was SpellBetta, my keyboard skillz alone would kill me. However, I am usually a better speller than most folks around me but only because I read a lot.

    I really like the “you are part of the history of art drawing”; both the drawing and placement and meaning of the quote. Sounds like a fun workshop. I have jpg’s in my screen saver folder of a painter whose drawn portraits are *exactly* like that . . . but I don’t remember his name and have bad file hygiene (“T3030_19” is not really helpful for a goodle search). He had a great show at a 57th St. gallery a few months ago, written up in the Times. So, yeah. Cool if not informative.
    And I would be tempted to troll SpellBetta with “ZOMG LOLZ u guyz r crzy WTF spelling?!1one111 Oh noes1 ROFLMAO |\1347sp34K FTW!11!one!11!!1eleven111!1

    Heehee, I like “bad file hygeine,” I might gank that one. . .

    OMG!! Dani you are so cruel, I thought there really WAS a Spellbetta!! (What did Mr. Barnum say about how often I was born?)

    I would have SO TOTALLY joined!!
