Cool Hat

This was the main drawing for a life drawing demo tonight for the art association. Great crowd on a night with a lot of other local events happening. Katie C was the model and posed in a tutu, jean jacket and a cool purple hat. I decided to paint it red for a pop of color. 15-20 minute sketch, conte and pastel.

Old Paint

The Newnan horses are finally out on the square and I can blog about it. This is a fundraiser for the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society. They want to create a children's museum. 25 artists painted horses and colts. Mine is a gift for a man that had a Civil war battle on his property. I put events and people specific to that particular history on his horse. He is a Dr and specializes in breast reconstruction for breast cancer survivors. The horse is called "Survivor"... a nod toward war horses as well as those who have fought cancer. My sponsor was Evelyn Jones. Great project to be a part of. Approx 42 hours to finish.
