Heather's Pearls -Paint Party Friday

It was a surprise when I ended up with a redhead wearing pink pearls.  Sometimes my artwork has a mind of its own.  In this case, that's exactly what happened.


And here is my lovely model Heather!  She has such a beautiful profile.  I'm so grateful to this wonderful young woman and her friends.  Their ideas and friendship inspire me to be a better artist and photographer.


Here is yet another doodle from my sketchbook.  It is called The point of Her Sword.

Above you see my beautiful and expressive young friend Rena.  Eventually the sword in the drawing will be adorned by the reflection of her face.  I haven't quite figured out how to do it yet! 

Have a lovely day and Happy Paint Party Friday!

How clever and skillful you are with your drawings from life. If you didn't show the original, they could look like fantasy drawings, but we can see how well you have captured the likeness.

Lovely style. Love your artists license to paint pink pearls! I have no doubt you will figure out how to get that reflection in the sword!

When art has a mind of its own, that's the best thing to be creative!

I love how your art has a mind of its own. Wouldn't following reality all the time be just so boring? Lovely artwork.

Crazy how art does that sometimes. It has a mind of its own. But love the redhead with pearls.

Your work is beautiful. I love not only what you paint but the words you use to describe what you are doing. The quote you had on the right side of your site is just what I needed to read today. "Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It is learning to dance in the rain" Great reminder for what is happening this week.
