This is a contribution by Nava who used her self-portrait and created two different versions. I see the possibility of some very exciting paintings from these images. The drawings can stand alone as they are exciting and intriguing. Keep the drawings coming!
I took some pictures at an art show at Fort Mason in SF some time ago of some very exciting wire sculpture art. One of my favorite artists makes very three-dimensional animals - birds, roosters, etc. They are extremely complicated and intricate. Unfortunately, I didn't get to photograph his work and I can't even tell you his name (I don't remember it!). The artist represented below uses wire in a very different way - more like drawing with wire. I think these pieces are brilliant! Notice how a wire sculpture casts shadows which becomes an important element of the piece. Again, I failed to record the artist's name. I must do better next time

I spent yesterday at the Gallery Concord putting up the rest of my paintings. I am so excited to have two of my series well represented at once! It was a long day but I managed to do a few drawings in my sketch book. Today I woke up and did two contour drawings while still in bed so I could make sure to do some art. I spent the day in San Francisco at the Society of Western Artists annual exhibit and reception. I was honored to receive an award. There were many many fine paintings in the show, so I was very fortunate.
Tomorrow is the first day of the month, so stay tuned for a month long painting challenge! It is going to be something that I have been promising myself to do for a long time.

Well, Myrna, you've got me curious. I've never seen wire "painting" before! And congratulations on your award at the SF show!!
