If you remember, dear Myrna Wacknov, a wonderful lady and great artist, sent me this painting on tyvek because it so reminded me of my father. My sister said the same thing when she saw it - except for the hair, which Dad brushed straight back (and the age because he only lived to age 35 and this man looks a bit older). So my sister and I have decided Myrna has painted Dad if he were older, perhaps 50's instead of 30's so current hairstyle, etc.
Anyway, I had it matted and framed and here it is. I'm calling it Guitar Man Sam.
And again, thank you,
This will be a treasure for me for a long time.
Today I'm trying to get the minutes from the watercolor society done with photos, etc. so no painting - but I do have a sketch to share: Three artist friends and I have decided to challenge each other to sketch at least 1 sketch every week in July. The sketches are to be of our home towns/neighborhoods or houses and gardens, etc. So this one was done while sitting on the back deck watching the goldfinches surround the feeder this afternoon. I should add a touch of yellow to show they are goldfinches but I can always just splatter a bit of yellow on later...(I darkened it so it was more visible since it's just sketched in graphite).
