Two beginnings

Very different. The landscape reminds me that I hate to paint landscapes, while the portrait appeals to my interest in rebels. Notice that this Gibson Girl has a black eye, which I will be playing up in subsequent iterations.

Looking forward

Today is the day my shipment of art supplies is arriving. Over 40 canvases, huge amount of colors, new palette knives-so excited I am having trouble focusing on painting. These are two portraits I am working on. The Dalai Lama is on twitter, so I am going to start following his posts. As it is I listen to his webcasts which keep me inspired at work.
