This work in progress is taking a while. But it's coming together. I had done this before in a smaller version but I didn't like it. So now, this is going to be a 16x12" pastel painting, and it is forming a bit better.
I hope today finds you healthy and happy.
Thanks for dropping by, I appreciate you all!
This is a new painting for one of my exhibitions next week. I have two upcoming shows.
The Button Tree CafeStudley Art Society exhibition
If you are local to Redditch or Studley... or Droitwich... Please check out one of these exhibitions. I appreciate you all 🙂
My latest painting... is a pastel painting.
The size is about 12x8" on heavyweight paper.
I titled it "The Last Silent Diva".
This is a painting of the silent film actress Anita Page. She lived to a ripe age of 98! According to Wikipedia, and I realize that not everything you read on there is correct... At that age, she was of course the last surviving Silent Film actress in 2008. She was only 15 when she started acting.
Anita Page was known as the most beautiful face in Hollywood at the time.
I certainly agree a bit, but I have my favorites.
Thank you for dropping by!
Wow I am actually going to do a painting on the first day of the month! I can't believe it is September already.
I may not (probably WON'T) get this painting done today.
It is a 20x16", which is big for me, I usually do no bigger than 12x16" but I like trying new things. I was even contemplating getting bigger paper for a big painting. We will have to see what happens.
Lots of my online friends have joined together in painting 30 paintings in 30 days ( a challenge by Leslie Saeta).
I wasn't going to do it at first because I mentioned to you earlier that I am so out of practice.
But I decided to add this and when I am finished, to add the finished product.
So here is my starting entry for the month. (I hope it isn't my last one haha) 🙂
This is a Work in Progress, as I mentioned before. (I have to work on the eyes now)
I hope you like it and I will be posting as I go along.
Thank you very much for dropping by, I appreciate you ALL 🙂
