Christmas Drawing and ... Member of Merit
Here's my last drawing before Christmas. It's a lot of fun to do these. "Cameron" is the fourth grandchild I have drawn for my client.
On another note, I just found out that I received the Member of Merit status in the Portrait Society of Atlanta. It's been 4 years since anyone has been eligible. The portfolios of members who have reached juried status are thoroughly (really) graded on a point system by 3 prominent artists with different styles. I feel honored to be chosen
I paint everyday life because I believe there is beauty in everything. I enjoy looking deeper to find the uniqueness that I know is there. I love the way light falls on the form whether it's a portrait, a still life, or a landscape. Mystery in the shadows or a story to be told is what I want the viewer to find in my paintings. How blessed I am to be able to create on a regular basis. Life is good. I hope you enjoy my work.
