Do you get scared of images? This was a 20-minute exercise for Studio Bridge #life-drawing. I find the image so scary that I put it in a narrow box. As one who’s never followed super-hero characters, horror movies, or comics, I tried to conjure compassion for this joker by pretending he was more afraid than I. Guess I need to catchup on my cultural literary awareness.
I thrive on hearts, hugs, thumbs up, and encouragement. There are a bunch of beautiful souls and friends who connect via FaceBook. I’m taking a time-out from FB… my new internet connection is the website crowjohnsonevans.com, or my email crowspun at gee mail dot com. Or make a zoom appointment!
Why? I can slide into hours on FB. Instead, I’m going to go for a walk, or sit on the deck, or read…. You now know how to find me. Please do. Hugs, Auntie Crow
Martina McGowen is an author I’ve met in recent years. She’s a person of brilliance and talents. I put the artwork from her book “I am the Rage” over her mouth because she is a powerful poet. https://www.facebook.com/martina.mcgowan.5
This is my evenings project, a portrait of Guy Clark. He was a good friend and awesome songwriter.
How do we express our emotions and ideas? Melodies, pencils, watercolor, words, or finger paints. Is it saying the same thing in different “languages”.
Here are sketches and the reference photo of Dorothy Dandridge. Each attempt shows me different information to learn something knew.
Hey ya’ll…Try something in a different way for fun. Tell us how it went.
Do you see what you want to see? Sometimes I wrinkle my nose up just right to make things look better. 20 minutes studies are a great exercise…to send my perfectionist to time-out.
