I'm going to be ultra busy so I needed to get this off, which I hope to do later today. I did two acrylics.
The first is a portrait of "Sissy," the main character in some of my children's novels. I worked hard on it, but I've never had a class in acrylics or in portraiture, and it didn't come out like I wished it would. I just ordered two books on the subject and will try again. It's in a realistic/children's art style, that is, art for kids. (Eventually, hopefully, for my books).
The second one, Farewell, First Lady of the Air," is a portrait of Amelia Earhart's departure on her last flight with a lot of artist prerogative done in a semi-Expressive mode. The idea for it came from a display at the Ford Museum. (A three-D display).
The third image, "New Leaves over Water," is the last pocket item for Andrea (unless I am foiled in my attempts to mail today.) It's a small print from a painting brand new today. It's a digital smudge painting--I was fascinated by the "fall-like" colors of the new cottonwood leaves.
The images will get a little bigger if you click on them.
