Lunch with "old" friends

Today I was so lucky!  I had lunch with friends from Steele Creek Elementary.  We worked together from 1976-1983.   I hadn't seen some of these ladies in almost thirty years.  What  a special blessing it was to reconnect with my friend Nettie Gentry.  We taught kindergarten next to each other for seven years!  It's hard to believe that we were in our early twenties when we started working together.  So many memories!  After lunch, we went over to my studio.  Here's a picture of Nettie with her new painting!
Thank you to Joy Cheek for organizing our lunch and to Betty, Kay, Marie, Sandy, and Joey for a great time together!

Introduction to Figure

Figure Class - November 2012

Yesterday I went to an Intro to the Figure session at Andy Braitman's studio taught by Charlotte!  Great class with lots of reminders, input, and feedback.  It was interesting to have a young male model - different energy and a need for more straight lines and angles.    The above drawings are just sketches, but I thought they were worth  posting.
