I am on a journey. Perhaps this is a journey of reconnecting to a significant part of me.
Some moments in a life seem to happen as they are, and some happen simultaneously laden with wonder. It behooves us all to be conscious enough to recognize all the moments of our life when they occur... this is one for me:
Recently, I have been commissioned to paint a very special portrait_ the portrait of a beloved animal companion.
In order to keep my client informed of its progress, I have planned to post the portrait's drawing-painting process to my blog. This may happen daily, and posting the progress may also happen more sporadically.
Today, I begin posting with my first, very rough warm-up sketch started last night, and finished this morning. It is of a random puppy from the cover of a magazine. With it, I am simply warming up on many fronts, in choosing this image of canine devotion.
I am inviting you to join this journey; to tune in and watch the progress of this portrait.
The journey begins...
