I am a bit behind, but… Merry Christmas! I hope your holidays have been lovely. My month has been busy, and I am sorry I have removed myself from this blog for so long. I have not even checked it since my last post! But I have done some art and since Christmas is past, I think I am free to show you some commissioned work.
a pencil drawing –
another pencil drawing –
and a watercolor of the same cute girls (not a very good photo, though) –
And a watercolor portrait done a few months ago that I never shared with you. Was holding off until the big reveal and then just didn’t… until now. I am pleased with this, actually I am pleased with them all. I force myself to look critically at my work and when I see my errors and able to fix them (based on learned knowledge), I am a happy camper.
My daughter introduced me to QI, a British TV show with Stephen Fry. It is very funny although extremely crude (by American ‘Southern States’ standards anyway) and one episode shows what is called “the Thatcher Effect.” I think this is the same idea of turning your portraits upside down and viewing them for errors. (There is a post somewhere in this blog that talks about that.) Watch QI on youtube for a good laugh when you have time but if you are offended easily, be forewarned!
My title was taken from an old joke. Do you know it?
