It's been a busy week for me drawing and painting ... I was absolutely thrilled to find both
"The Couple" AND "The Purple Haired Lady" at Tacos Jalisco a week ago Thursday!
The lady looked fantastic with her hair coiffed up high and colorful, with matching brightly painted purple nail polish! I adored drawing her, and painting her afterwards was absolutely delicious!
"The Couple" were curious and he asked to see what I'd done simply because he said I did it in a mere 7 minutes! Who knew I was being timed? He was impressed!
And since I was so fast with that first drawing I had time to kill so I drew this second drawing right afterwards ... getting a sense of how full and busy they were on this lunch hour!
I hadn't seen the family, the owners of Tacos Jalisco, in over a week, as they had all been down with the flu. Senor J. came out from the kitchen and gave me a kiss on the cheek! Senora J. gave me a huge hug; and Carlos Jr. greeted me warmly as well. It felt so good to be reconnected again with my family there! Carlos and I had a sweet chat about his acting classes and our art!
Gosh, I nearly forgot, that morning we'd gone to Starbucks in Dixon, where I drew these women, after we dropped DH's car off at the mechanics for some needed repairs! I just might have enough Starbucks drawings by the end of the year to do a book of just them! Again, everyone was on some techie device!!!! Perhaps this is THE BRAVE NEW WORLD Aldus Huxley was talking about. (It was he who wrote that book, right?)
On Friday I had a dental appointment in Fairfield, so before hand we stopped in at the Barnes and Nobles Starbucks. I found some people posing for me there to draw!
books and technology
This mom was hooked up to something she was listening too. I was happy to see the kid reading an actual book! I think I may have enough pictures of people technologically hooked up for yet another book by years end!
Now, that's an idea!
As I eluded to in my post title I still have several more painted drawings done this week, but will post them on Sunday... I guess I am getting faster and find myself turning out no less than two pages a session of late. They are piling up! Come back to see more then!
Happy Paint Party Friday. Visit other artists works on their blogs via the link on my side bar. Some times you can see as many as 90 people participating. I do my best to get to them all. I apologize for when I am unable to do that, but I keep trying.
