was actually on a modeling stage this morning in this pose. I started thinking
where I’d place her after the basic sketch was done. I was lost for a moment in

doesn’t look like this. She didn’t look like this while I was painting her. But
by the end of this morning’s session I had this portrait of this person, sort

I added more paint, maybe enough to consider
a new title.
Most of the crowd has faded, becoming
observers to the four. And the three appearing with “She” appear to be
encouraging followers, not really part of the show.
Obviously the painting isn’t finished, and
the original words no longer apply. This is what happens to unfinished
paintings that shouldn’t be worked on until what was painted in the first place
has found its story.
I want to say a little, but not too much. I would like the drawings, painting and writing I post on this site to express what needs to be known about me.
I’ve been an architect for years, with drawing (other than for building projects) and painting and writing in the background, wanting more of my attention. A while ago I changed the priorities, spending more time now recording and expressing what I observe and what I am imagining or dreaming about. The drawings, paintings and words I post almost every day. I hope you enjoy my art and the dialogue.
