LAST DEMO IMAGE

NOBODY KNOWS THE TROUBLE I"VE SEEN

I had the pleasure of working with a great group last week in my workshop Advanced Portraiture sponsored by the Santa Clara Watercolor Society.  Unfortunately, my back decided to give me lots of problems.  Everyone was most understanding and helpful and forgiving as I was unable to walk around as much as I like to work with everyone.  Things are improving but still not up to full speed.  I have a great slide show of all the fabulous self portraits the group did to show you as soon as I get it put together.  In the meantime, here is my demo for the last day where we worked on incorporating hands into the portrait.  I drew the image with walnut ink onto a a piece of paper I had previously collaged with various papers including some torn Tyvek.  The surface was exciting to work on.  Check back for the slide show tomorrow or the next day!

This image is absolutely extraordinary! You would probably do very well with it if you entered it into some of the larger national exhibitions. It is also amazing that it was a demo !!! Save this one. it's a beauty!

Our body doesn't always co-operate with our plans. Am sorry Verna. Am sure your workshops are such a treat, if you ever get to Texas let me know
