.writer's block over man.

.NAME: Milly.
.DATE: 1/20/2009, 7 days from the beginning of my artist's block.
.TIME: 10:48pm.
.PROBLEM: averted.


.{above is a close up of the image below}.


{this is still underconstruction, but it's coming along...the texture is setting in...acrylic & spackling paste on canvas}.



.a finally, this last man is my "writer's block over man". On the way to Hotlanta I sketched this with crayons and colored pencils. He's delightfully colorful. I think his last name is Morris and I captured him from a photo in The Economist. seriously. haha!!

.So, thanks for sticking by me during these trying times....I am painting again like a crazy lady. Happy Inauguration!.

Both are delightful works. I like the placement of the man on the drawing tablet. Also both very unwintry.

By the way, I have sent a postcard of my illustration work to my sister in england to send to the Economist. Worth a shot...

It´s a very expressive portrait. The position is perfect too.

I just love your colorful world! Wow! So much expression in both pieces. Your boldness is divine.

And HA! Snowlephant next door gave me a good tickle. Thanks so much for your visit!

Awesome! Glad you were able to get over your painters block =)

As for the chairs, my mom has them set up like that all year lol. She has a massive amount of chairs. I'm going to have to do a week long post of all her chairs!

Great news---glad to hear you're back at it with enthusiasm! As I writer who is currently in a funk, I totally feel your pain. But Mr. Morris looks utterly charming and the canvas is breathtaking!

I've always found The Economist to be especially inspirational, in an underground punkrock sort of way.

You're Back! You are such a talented lady.
Right now I'm trying to get out of a show- I just can't seem to find my groove.
I can't wait to see what you share next.
Great Day~

Technically speaking I haven't finished the first painting so any suggestions are appreciated.

I love your painting, I wonder what else you will do to it. The light is wonderful and it is full of movement, wonderful.
The colorful man is really fun too. So glad you feel good about a couple pieces!
