EDUCATION, PERSERVERENCE...LUCK

Reflection and Election

I was digging around in my small studio this morning, once again postulating that a few hours spent on organization would be a good thing. But since I'm about to spend the afternoon out going door-to-door with my running mates (Greenwich Town Board! Vote for Us!) I scaled back my plans. All the way back, to:

Gather recent watercolor paintings: update my portfolio.

As a predominantly 3D artist, for a number of years my "portfolio" was a few sheets of slides. Woefully outdated--slides? Does anyone still possess a slide projector? My 2D work was basically sketches and graphic design assignments from college and that was...loooong ago. Not to mention, my portfolio book was one of those leviathan zippered books that needed handles in order to be hefted around, and a large, unburdened table to open it up on.

When I gathered up the work from this past year and spread it out all over the bed, I was pleasantly surprised, and recharged for a rating session, and to remake my portfolio.
 These are some of my drawings and paintings from the past 12 months-or-so...
A dancer with the New York City Ballet

 My ruggedly handsome husband

 and historical reenactors in historical costumes!




And Cassidy, alla prima, in oil.

  2. Thank you! I've lately been derailed by a completely unrelated-to-art set of events, and I can't wait to get back to where I can focus on drawing and painting.
