Oil on Fredrix panel, 6"x8", needs a frame
Who could resist taking a photo of a redhead under these fabulous colored umbrellas? When my friend Suzy Pal and I flew to Florida for a collage workshop we had to make several trips to the beach for photos and she probably has one just like this on her computer. Someone in a recent workshop asked where I get all my photos and one good source if you and your friends don't share photos is to join Wet Canvas. They have photos posted on the site to share. Sometimes if I find an internet photo I particularly like, I'll write the owner and ask permission to use it if it is very distinctive. I've written CD photographers for their permission, also.
In the last workshop I took with Harold Frontz he gave us some sketching hints and mentioned a book we might like. I ordered it and when I got home found out I already had one. How often this happens to us or maybe it's just me because as an ex-librarian I do love my books (art books to be more specific). Amazon tries to help me out on this by saying "You purchased this book..da..da..da". The books in question are The Complete Sketch by Robert Oliver and the Sketch in Color. My goal every year is to draw and sketch some each day. I said it was my goal not saying I do it. It's a good goal.
