PC Problems Etc, Etc....

The month of August started with computer problems and went down hill from there.....but the "puter" is fixed and life goes on.

Yesterday, while waiting for my computer, I sketched a self-portrait in graphite. It is a fast study of myself. They say [and I don't know who "they" are.] that we should sketch ourselves often as a exercise in art. This was an exercise to say the least. But at least I can chock that exercise off as done for a while.

Over the last few weeks I have been finishing up some caseins and some graphite studies of works to be done. I have also been getting works ready for "A Dog and Pony Show " ,an Invitational Exhibit that opens on August 31st at Skyline Farm Carriage Museum in North Yarmouth, Maine. This is the second year that I am curating and exhibiting in this fun show.This year we have some great artists participating and I am sure there will be something for every one's artistic taste.

Hi Kathi,
I remember when you challenged those of us on the EAG to draw our self portraits, I still get scared to death when I see the one I did of myself. :) Haven't tried it again! maybe I should until I get it looking better! donna

yes, Donna, try a portrait. It doesn't have to be a masterpiece,just a study............and a good exercise.
Everyone says I need to do a smiling one now.
So that's on my list of to-do's!
