I am setting a personal challenge to paint 10 new head and sholder portraits from life during the next 30 days. Crazy you say? Maybe so, but I need to do more work from life.
Why10? Well, I figure that there are 31 days in May and 12 of those days I am tied up with life and other responsibilities. This leaves me 19 days at my studio in Little Washington. So, if I can round up 10 people willing to sit twice for 2 to three hours, I just may pull this off. Finding the models is the hard part. Everyone thinks it is great fun to be a model until they actually have to do it.
Am I afraid of failure? No. There is no shame in failure, just disgrace in not trying.
Stay tuned for photos and progress reports.
