It's Sunday March 29,2020

Hi Everyone!

I feel like I have been busy but in reality I have been lazy. This staying at home stuff has changed my routine. I was wondering what I could even blog about. I am tired of hearing about the worlds situation and just needed some sort of break. So today I have bread rising in a warm place. Mr. M. wants cookies, I think something light, like lemon cookies. I also decided to paint. I am going to try something different. I have painted faces before, kind of fun, goofy faces. Portraits I have not tried before. I pulled down my folders of graphite portraits and as I found one I liked tossed it to the floor. When I looked down I thought what a great photo. As I inspected the art, that I did over about 4 years, my thought was I drew hair better back then than I do now. LOL  Anyway here is the shot I took and the beginning of my portrait. Not sure how long this will take or even what style I will attempt. You all know how much I love abstract. It's a mystery. LOL
Have a great day, be safe, and of course elbow hugs.

These are just a few from my folders




 Just getting started. Wish me luck

  1. Oh hi, Nicole. Staying at home has changed everybody's routine, not just yours. You made bread? That's awesome! I saw your (old) drawings/paintings (what's the actual difference?) and I like them all but the creepy long-haired lady is unique and quite scary, she just pops-up. Good luck with the new one! :)

    1. Ohhh that so called scary drawing is part of a series I did for abused kids. I have several others that are quite foretelling. Thanks for stopping by. Yes I bake bread, and it is the old fashion way. No bread machines.

  2. Wishing you luck, Nicole! I bet you can do this, and I can’t wait to see the effort along the way. I’m painting, but never a face. If I have a human in a painting, it is not a detailed face, or even more likely is the human’s head is turned the other way. Lol!

  5. Have fun with it Nicole! You have done a lot of beautiful portraits! :) I have my watercolours all packed, I think I'm going to unpack them and try to do something colourful and abstract!
