Little Girl #3

I finished this one back in July but only just now got around to photographing it. I love this little one. It's just 3.25"x3.25".

Oh, and I updated with a better photo of Lily.

This is one of my favorites. I finished this one back in July, but I guess I forgot to post it here.

New Work

Well, I am back for a lovely three-day weekend and have had an amazing first week back at school - I actually had free time to draw and paint! I have lots of new stuff to post this weekend.

I was fortunate enough recently to attend a concert by the Artis-Quartett Wien. My friend and me got seats in the front row and were bowled over by the performance. I brought my sketchbook with me and drew the group while they played - I think I went through about 17 pages. It was an awesome experience and a huge challenge to try to capture the motions of the musicians. Afterwards we got to meet the quartet and get their autographs.
