I had an absolute blast this weekend at the portrait and figure drawing and painting workshop with Brian Smith. He certainly left everyone wanting more. We had some great models too. Louis, the 70ish Italian ladies man was so disappointed that he didn't get to model his thong and show off his body builder body! Tracey was an absolutely wonderful and gorgeous young woman who is an artist herself. I'm thinking that I want to do more life drawing and painting so I'm going to check out some local groups to practice with live models.

IMT - Coffee Break

I love this topic! Maybe because I love coffee? Not sure how much time I'll have to paint something on this topic, but it's for a good reason! I get to spend all weekend painting with Brian Smith ( He is also "Mr. November" in American Artist. Can't wait!

Anyway, I did snap this photo of my coffee break...may even do a painting out of this....

Here is one of my latest paintings. It's called "Undercover" and was inspired by a photo of my sister and I as children.
