Trying something new
I have been wanting to paint some new faces for awhile now and while I loved what I learned in Suzi Blu's class, I am really a lover of a more imperfect, edgier, more raw type of art. I recently discovered a blog written by a woman of color and I loved the idea of doing some paintings of women of color myself, so here's what I have played with the last two nights. I think I have a long way to go in the pursuit, but I love seeing these faces looking back at me when I wander into the room. As primitive as they look, they are not quite edgy enough for me, but I will continue to work on it. I am happy to have my hands back into my art supplies!
