Calling Islanders who would like to sit for a portrait. I would love to draw you. If you have some free time, sunday mornings, we could use models for our drawing class. Call if you would like to be immortalized in paint or pen! 378 2638. Don't worry, nude modelling not necessary!
We had a great session with Dennis Willow this week. He entertained us with stories of ice diving under the South Pole, Simplified Neurobiology, music recorded on garage band by his daughter, differences between jazz and rock drumming, and his current research about finding the neurological bases for the internal magnetic compass of sea slugs!
I brought a pile of old arial pilot's charts to use this week, which by chance worked nicely as Dennis is also a pilot.
Mixed media, actually no paint, felt pen, gesso, sumi and walnut ink, colored pencil, plus weird little stickers I found at an estate sale....
Available at Funk & Junk. $300.

It's a wet winter here with a kind of a quiet beauty. The wild roses are burgundy, the trees stay green and the lichens revive on the fence posts. Here's 12" x 16" oil on canvas of an island barn. Available at Funk & Junk $425.
Sunday Art Class will begin Jan 18. This 6 week session we will be concentrating on the basic building blocks of drawing, line, observational skills, light and values, shapes and textures, perspective, & composition. Each week we will have a take home project. Looks like a great group so far, Sharon Lannon, Wendy Woods with her daughter Echo, Mya Burnett, and Virginia Van Camp. Look for our drawings on this blog, Only simple supplies, call for more info 378 2638
