Sketching in preparation for first solo show at Marin Coffee Roasters!
Then I also realized that I have several days of vacation coming and my boss was very open to letting me take a few. So paint, paint, paint!
I decided to focus on "Bolinas dogs" and just enjoy myself. And then hopefully that enjoyment will show up in the paintings - and sketches. I think I might take some of my beach dog photos and do some acrylic gel transfers too. Luckily I have some gallery-wrap canvasses sitting around, since I absolutely can't afford to buy even one frame.
I did some sketching last night based on some of those photos and am so happy with the results, but then (and perhaps fellow artists, this happens to you too?) I had a total panic that I could never do anything like that ever ever again. Oh that gremlin. Shutten zee uppen, gremlin.
Here are more sketches.
The reception will probably be Friday February 5 at the Marin Coffee Roasters in San Anselmo. More deets to follow.
Wish me luck!
