Well it’s been a rough week. End of the school year always seems to get people on edge. Relationship troubles, kids/teacher troubles, political troubles, blah blah blah. Anyway that’s why I’ve been absent from the blog. The art stuff kind of grinded to a complete stop.
But today I got to do a short photo shoot with an adorable two-year-old little lady who needs a pencil portrait drawn for her family. Reeling from the events of the past week, I was terribly unprepared and I think I kept her family waiting for 20 minutes out in my driveway (so unprofessional). But the photo shoot went well, she was an angel, and I got to meet her new week-old baby sister.
Next I had a 2-hour chat with a local photography celebrity at her beautiful place of business, which was a lot of fun because I don’t get to talk too often with wildly creative professionals.
And to cap off the day, I had two lovely young ladies come meet me with their mother so they could learn more about the type of modeling I will be needing for my paintings, I showed them some concept art and corresponding photo shoots from the past so they could become familiar with my process. I showed them the new art I want to create and how the pose might be difficult to establish. By the end they both were showing off how far they could twist their torsos.
Oh I almost forgot – I got a fidget-spinner today. It’s pretty awesome.
