Sometimes I just feel like painting something at home...this is a view under my kitchen window drawn from my vantage point sitting at my patio table outdoors.
I love watching these flowers slowly bloom from closed bumpy pods, breaking open
to sprays of blue flowers.
Meanwhile back at Taco Jalico's on Tuesday I sat facing this woman, and later her little girl.
They had very long necks and faces like Modigliani paintings, not that I captured that here, but just stating a fact.
I painted them later at home...
I drew this couple the same day...they are THE COUPLE and they say hi to me when they come in... He often puts his arm around her. They remind me of a couple who may have been together since high school. Or, maybe it's a second marriage for both? Who knows. They sure do seem to love each other no matter how long it's been.
[The true story about this drawing can be seen on Twenty Minute Challenge blog and you can get there from the linked icon on my side bar.]
Meet the musicans! I apologize for not getting their names for you. They were good. I enjoyed them for a whole hour while I sat and drew as I listened.
This couple brought their own chairs and were so laid back. It was a pleasure watching them enjoying too!
When they finished I went into the bakery for my usual chicken salad sandwich on pumpkin seed bread. The bread seemed a little stale today. Oh well. That was definately a first ever!
But this guy is someone I have drawn before. He has a beard you cannot see in this drawing. But today he was wearing the most good looking shirt! It looked like zentangles and paisley all combined. It was various shades of blue and white with black outlines around the flowers, leaves and swirls. I got tired of painting last night so you will just have to use your imagination!
A good week for drawing and painting. I thank all the unsuspecting models who show up for me each week.
Posting this for Paint Party Friday too...to see more of the terrific art from those artists go to the top icon on my side bar. You won't be disappointed.
