Work, work, work

Commissioned Portrait

The above piece is a commission I finished just before I started school. It was done for Harry's 80th birthday.

I originally thought I would have a separate blog for what I accomplish in school over the next 6 weeks but it has become too much to think about. My head is already hurting from all the reading and thinking I have to do! I am usually too busy making art (and helping kids) to analyze why I am making art. Not to mention the writing!
I did start a painting last Friday. It is the weight of the world on my shoulders. Hopefully it will start to manifest itself more as I paint.

However, over the weekend I did not get to work on it. Instead I worked on another commission and did writing homework. I am currently staying with my mother in law so she was able to document the work.

Wow ... you ARE busy, Leslie. I am glad you had time to post "Harry". He looks so un-work, work, work.

You're doing so many wonderful things lately! The man's portrait is priceless, in my opinion. I know they will love it! And the shoulders portrait is beautiful.

Thank you everyone for the encouraging words! University is such a different world from the practical! I am still trying to wrap my brain around all the reading. It has been nearly 20 years. sigh.
