I have been team-teaching at Art Camp with some of my talented colleagues from the Arlington Artists Academy this week. It's been alot of fun to see the kids creating. My lessons were: Summer Critters in Wax Resist, and Drawing with Scissors like Henri Matisse. Check out the Arlington Artists Academy for more great classes for children and adults!
This sweet little pen and ink on hand made paper, entitled "Dog in Repose" sold this month at Gallery Underground. I am so happy this little dachshund has found a good home. I did a series of sketches a while back of a friends beloved dachshund, Max. He has since gone on to dog heaven but is not to be forgotten... a little dog with a big personality! I love doing these pen and ink sketches, because it is challenging to distill an image (or a dogs personality) down to a few strokes of the pen! My challenge is always to see how few stokes I can make.
I have been an artist all of my life. I can't help it. Drew on the walls in kindergarten, painted pictures in high school, went to Art School, worked as an art director, started painting again. And am loving it.
