quick sketch for practice







What is your androgynus name? (mine is Price Santiago...cool!)








Update: My ex-h just phoned me to tell me that this is the ugliest thing I have ever painted. I disagree. I know I've painted worse things. I just don't usually post them. ha.

I spent the day trying to come up with a great androgynous name. I use "farhal" when I draw unflattering cartoons of local politicians, but that's not a cool name.

I like this oil sketch--she looks determined.

Great sketch. You are always an inspiration. That's true, or my name isn't Taylor Quinn!
