Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

Bare Necessities

Have you ever tried to draw the figure in thirty seconds?

It's not enough time to get much down on paper: just the very simplest shadows or lines of gesture.

I really enjoyed the challenge of these warm-up poses at Open Studio. You can see how I start the longer poses which begin with the thought process evident in these brief sketches. They almost look like nothing... but if you look closely, you can see the forms.
