The computer I am working on, has been through a rework, for the past 2 days. Not sure its any better, but its working! so I’m happy.
I have been nominated by 3 of my face book friends to do a challenge. Thank you Michelle McKinlay, Karen Duvel , and Tanya Reid. Each person is asked to share 3 or 4 of our old pieces of art, for 5 days.
This is one of the first painting I did. It was between 1966 to 1968. while my husband was stationed in the Philippine Islands. I was 21_23 years old.
Another old piece is a needle work of my husband and myself, from a photo taken at Knotts Berry Farm, time unknown.
I found 2 old painting I had started in the 1970’s while living in Indiana. neither of them are finished, and I may go back know and play with them. Do you notice the burnt Orange décor? the blue and white pitcher, is a piece of ceramics that I painted. most of the pieces have long ago been given away or lost.
This is an old portrait of my in-laws done as a gift in 1978.
I’ve also been doing a couple of graphite sketches in my old journal, that I need to finish. Still have classes I haven’t started, but I am sketching!
this one had a wild hair style and would be fun to paint.
I have also been commissioned to do a painting of a family of three children. I was given several small photos to choose from. not sure which I will settle on. In the mean time I did a couple of little sketches in my journal .
My son, the red head in the paintings above, sent me a gift this week. He doesn’t sport that bowl cut any longer ( that was my handy work) to show his support of my art. Love you, Brad!
I would like to nominate a couple of my friends to follow me in the challenge. So I would like to nominate Sweetred Clover, and Raine Phoenix.
