Happy New Year Everyone!!
 I sort of fell off the planet there for a bit. Got this stupid gomboo that has been cycling through my family. Just when I think I'm on the mend, I come down with it again. Exhausting. Whine, whine.
So, new year, fresh start. Paying attention to what I respond to without over analyzing the reasons. I've been gathering names of portrait artists for the last couple months. Thought I would share these with you. I have always responded to portraiture, the human face having such endless possibilities. You move one little muscle and you can transform the expression. I want to explore this more this year...give in to the pull and embrace it. I've determined to post one painting that buzzed my brain everytime I blog. Let me begin with...

"When I Was Young"
Love the simplicity and repetition of circles, especially the subtle halo. I will probably post more of his work.

So, I've been invited to participate in a Faery Art Show held at Krab Jab Studio located in Seattle, WA.
Due to the time constraints I went through some older photos my daughter had taken of her daughter and used that. Here are the progress shots and final:

Oil on Paper


After this exhibit, the paintings will be deplayed at Faerie Con. I've never done this type of show. I hope she sells but it's an honor to be included with the other wonderful artists.

I love finding new artists through your blog, Kim! Awesome. :) And your fairy is so sweet! The con sounds fun, I'm sure she will find a loving home...

Sara Silkwood said...

Really love all these awesome artists you find and share! I'm also excited to see where you go with you portraiture explorations! Are you planning on being at Spectrum this year?

Thank you Angela.
*Hi Sara. Thanks for commenting. Unfortunately, I can't make it this year. Are you?

Excellent illustration! Hope the show goes well for you.

Bauman's painting is beautiful, I love the subtle light. I shall have to hunt down more of his work now.

Oh your children and grandchildren must just love being turned into fairies and other worldly creatures. And this is a gorgeous drawing and painting. I love the defiant stance. Wonderful work as always.
