I just started back to art school at age 51. This is some of my homework.
eric the model November 13, 2009
I sat in a different place than usual in my figure drawing class Wed. night. The model’s head was just peaking up over a rolled up futon. He had his arm cupping his head, but I just couldn’t quite “get” that down on paper. I was just recovering from a session of cancer radiation and was tired. So oh well.
Qway December 19, 2008
My art class had our holiday party last night and my favorite model posed. She had brought a Santa hat, but people objected because they like her tiny little dreadlocks.
circus people December 3, 2008
I saw a black and white photo of some circus people on Flickr and decided to convert it to a sort of overly bright, bold disjointed acrylic painting. The proportions are a little screwy but they’re supposed to be. Its reminded me a little of Paris in the 20’s.
love bites April 22, 2008
This was just a cartoon I draw at an all day drawing conference at the local university. They had a 15 foot long piece of construction paper up on the wall that you could draw anything on, and I decided to draw this cartoon on. I like the bright colors.
African American Girl in dress March 9, 2008
I go to a nude figure drawing class every week, but last week it was sort of cold in our room, so our model chose to wear a dress she had with her. And it was sort of nice, for a change, to be able to draw material.
Falling person February 28, 2008
There was a terrible snow storm last night and I was unable to attend my beloved figure drawing class and I really felt like creating something, so I ravaged the house and found one tiny canvas and started to paint. I haven’t painted much since summer. I really miss it. I also really had no idea what I was going to paint. I looked through some art magazines. And then amongst my MySpace art friends, trying to find an idea. I finally saw a falling man image and took it and made it my own. Its definitely mine. Yup.
