For the past few years I've been focusing on landscape painting.
That makes sense because I love the scenes I see whenever
I walk, or go for a drive. Yesterday the lake was sending waves
crashing against the shore, with that gorgeous high spray.
And I have really wanted to draw and paint faces lately. If I capture
a face properly, the person is there vividly before me. My portrait of
my niece who is gone, is in my studio. My sons are the first people I see
when I walk in the door -- because their portrait is there.
We are living in a time when we rarely see a person's whole
face unless they live inside our house. So the face has become
more important than ever. Tonight I'm showing you a sketch I
did today. I am also working on a portrait painting. And landscapes
still make we want to capture them, so I've got one on the go.
Have a talking to the people you love day.
