Another Busy Week of Art Making by Lynn Cohen

Often when I am watching TV at night I draw the people I am seeing there!
I drew these young singers on The Voice:
 

And sometimes I just doodle in this Zen fashion!

Lately I have been knitting while watching TV in the evenings, as it's time to make our youngest grand daughter her Selfie Doll and her Grandma and Papa dolls, as I made for her cousins a number of years ago. The first doll is ready to stuff. And then I will knit her wardrobe of clothes.



I still make a point of going out to draw in public. I like drawing at Barnes and Nobles while people are deep in thought over books and such.



Last weekend we went to hear my cousin Lisa Gluskin Stonestreet read from her new prize winning poetry book, Greenhouse! She was terrific and so is her book. You should buy it.
Her first book Tulips, Water, Ash won a prize as well. Buy them both!



At my other blog, Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens we are doing ten minute drawing challenges this week and next. Come join us there and do some too.


I still eat lunch at Tacos Jalisco and draw there. Remember my book of drawings from a year of lunches there? See it on my sidebar: One Fish Taco and Half an Order of Guacamole A Year of Drawing Over Lunch at Tacos Jalisco. You might want to think of buying some copies for friends for the holidays!!!  I'm told its very inspirational for artists wanting to draw more and in public. Or just for a fun read!



One more ten minute drawing done in my office:


Did you know I am the luckiest lady on the planet married to this amazing singer? I am. The picture tells the story! (He sang to me the first time on our first date in 1978 on the Berkeley Pier)



Wishing you a good week, a creative week. A week of drawing and fun. Happy holidays to those who celebrate Thanksgiving. I sure have a lot to be thankful for and will be enjoying that with family and friends. I feel very blessed.

Happy Paint Party Friday!

  2. My goodness, Lynn, you have really had a busy week. I know you sketch fast or you'd not get all that done. I love the real people you do. Sometimes I feel like they are folks I've run across too.

  9. I've always enjoyed how your artwork is linked directly to your daily life activities. My favorite pages this week are the ones you did at Barne's and Nobel, because of the people's facial expressions. Happy Belated Sunday Sketches and Blessings!
