My Studio helper
You just never know what the day will bring, do you?
Articles in magazines which feature different studios sometimes have pictures of the artist's studio helper. The helper is usually a dog or fluffy cat. Today I had a studio helper... He was on the side of my water container and I noticed him when I rinsed my brush. He was patient with my taking his "portrait" and crawled around for a long while then he was gone - and my neck started feeling very exposed. Sara was stung by a wasp this summer and it was not pretty. My neck kept feeling very vulnerable and a little creepy; I finally gave up and came in the house. Several of his friends were with him and I think that tomorrow we might have to spray or I will have to wear long sleeved, high-necked shirts with long pants and a veil!
Here is the girl. Who needs
I finally like this and might just keep it. It needs some fine tuning, but then again, don't we all! Don't think that Mona needs to worry (even though I heard today that a younger one has been found.) This face is a somewhat impressionistic. In fact, the whole thing is, just a little. A moment in time caught in paint.
I am re-working two other pieces and have hopes for them. Isn't it nice to have hope!!
Thanks for reading and I hope that your day (or night) is great.
