I'm cleaning my studio (again!) and I came across this portrait that I painted a couple months ago in Za Vue's workshop. I don't think I posted this one back then... It's better on several levels than most of the portraits I did prior to her workshop.
Sometimes I look at her face and think....Otilla, what would you think of this painting business?
I stopped at McDonald's yesterday for a cup of coffee. There was a woman in the next booth who was a good model for me to sketch. She kept relatively still as she tried over and over to reach someone on her cell phone. She appeared worried and I worried for her. I hope everything turned out ok, anonymous lady.
This is the lobby of the iphone doctor (Dave's speaker isn't working). I love this installation art....and look, once again, it has to do with 'connecting'. This is how it is in Portland. There is art............everywhere.
