Here is "phase one" of a painting idea...a birch tree in snow. I'm doing an underpainting and linking the darks (And everytime I link darks I'm grateful to Craig Srebnik for reminding me during my workshops with him to do just that). I'll put this aside at this simple stage ....and work on it again tomorrow. (Square format..!)
(Here are the virtues, in case you are curious too).
Do you ever page backwards through your sketch book? This is my favorite sketch of Maxine from my catsitting days. She got so she kind of liked me, but now when I see her she acts like she never met me before. Oh, cats...you are so inexplicable!
Cathleen Rehfeld who said to me (a few years ago) "Celeste, you have to have a blog". Since then, I've made many great contacts and friends through the blog (like you)! Yes, I appreciate all of you!
