'up, up in the air' by myra anderson...

self portrait by Kimberly Klauss
At first it seemed a little strange that after a month everything in (and hopefully outside of) the apartment had finally been resolved (fixed?) since the violent storms.  Now I need to work on putting my little studio space back together again.  Above is a little something I was working on with the ipad.  I just might finish it one day!  Also, I started watching the British television series 'portrait artist of the year' on youtube.  The competition includes amateur as well as professional artists.  It was interesting to see that each artist has their own unique approach to painting a portrait. The entry to the competition is a self portrait.  This one was by the artist Kimberly Klauss.


I was reminded of the art of 'drawing with a brush' and I am really thinking about getting some water mixable oil paints just for practicing drawing, drawing and drawing.  I have a stack of  computer books that I want to use for practice.  (I will buy some paint as soon as I get that 40 or 50 percent off coupon from Michaels! lol!)

Steve Childs
Well...my mind had been telling me that it's time to visit 'the fashion side of me'.  Then I saw this beautiful ballerina painting by Steve Childs.  So delicate...so intricate! What to do...what to do?
