Sisters WIP 1

Work in Progress of Sisters image
Work in Progress

This is what is currently on my drawing board. This commissioned piece is well overdue. Shortly after getting this commission I fractured a finger on my drawing hand. I had this portrait partly completed but then we moved and my art supplies were boxed up and were put in a place that was not easily accessible.

I have decided to start this portrait over and am making it larger for my client. The original drawing was 5"x7" and this on 8" x 10" on black paper.

This portrait should be completed in a week or so.

I have this portrait and one more commissioned piece that are overdue due to the broken finger and the move. However, once both of these are completed I will be available to take on commissions again, and once again, have them done in a timely manner.

The girls are adorable and I am looking forward to finishing this lovely piece.

The Sketchbook Project 2012 has been digitized!

My sketchbook entry to The Sketchbook Project 2012 has been digitized and uploaded to their site. I was a little disappointed that a few millimeters of the center fold was cut off on all my pages. However, it was explained to me that their scanner is made to be gentle with book binding and that it does tend to cut a little out of the gutter.

In order to view my project online go to and click on the Artwork tab.

There were thousands of sketchbooks submitted to the project this year. They will be exhibited at art spaces in 14 cities around the world. After the tour they will be archived at the Brooklyn Art Library. You can view the touring schedule on the Art House site.
