Freedom, Frail as Glass
New exhibit at Naperville Art League, "Beads" is one of two pieces I'm exhibiting there this month. She's done in color pencil on charcoal paper, image size 6-1/2 X 9-1/2. $150.00 framed. Not quite fitting with theme of exhibit "Freedom, Frail as Glass" but gracing the gallery with her presence.
I had a lovely day with life drawing workshop. 5-1/2 hours of sketching and drawing. Instructor Natalie's Bio: Natalie Leivant has painted the figure for the last decade in Indianapolis, Indiana. Her primary areas of focus have been figure drawing and oil painting. She has a Bachelor of Fine Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a teaching degree from Indiana University Bloomington. Natalie has experience teaching all ages and levels of skill.
She is quite young, and very kind. It was really a great feeling to give myself so much time, I'll have to try that again another day...5-1/2 hours, I'm ready.
