Before the pandemic Tuesday night was the night I met with my
art group to draw and paint from a model. I loved it. The charge from
spending as little time as an hour with the group inspired
me in so many ways. Seeing how people paint, listening to
conversations about art shows that were happening, the laughter,
jokes, and wonderful friends I've made -- make me happy to
be an artist. For the past few semesters my once a week evening
class was on Tuesday so I couldn't go. And now we’re in lockdown
and can’t meet as a group at all.
The painting tonight is a quick portrait sketch I did of an artist friend,
who was part of the Tuesday night group, Peter Adam. He posed
one night when the model didn’t show up. I think my admiration for
his amazing art comes through in this fast study. I love the painting.
Have a loving your life day.
