I finally got up from my chair (see last post) and figured out who the figure was that I had painted from Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel... She is (drumroll....)
I figured since Van Gogh and I spent some time together, I should maybe spend a little time with Michelangelo too.. Gotta keep things even you know :-)
This is a sketch from one of the figures in the Sistine Chapel. I have a giant book on Michelangelo - and there is a wonderful closeup of this beauty... I can't remember who she is right now and I'm too comfortable in my current chair to go into the next room and find out!
I am totally happy with the way she came out. I love this sketch journal paper... it's Canson Mix-Media "XL" if you are interested... I got the 9x12 but they make all diferent sizes.
P.S. I love being able to blog from my PHONE! I do hope the photographs are looking okay?

I have been processing some thoughts about my business - exactly what my business is - what I want it to be and where I'd like it to go... I guess I've been in the process of creating myself - then re-creating myself! and perhaps a few more times before it's all said and done. (do we ever really stop? I hope not!)
