Tuesday’s Portrait

Tina II, charcoal, 12 x 14 inchesJust in case you were wondering, last week's class was canceled. Sorry about that - I guess I could have said something, but I was in a funk.

Update on my Studio

During my long shift at the gallery yesterday, I took quite a few photographs of the building, and some pieces of mine that are … Continue reading Two Boys – Finished
