Green Grapes and a Wine Glass
This one took me a couple days to finish. Between brush strokes I was getting reports from my daughter concerning the fire in her apartment building.
It was very surreal for her to stand in her living room looking at walls with art all over them and the ceiling that was once over her head, under her feet. She spent most of yesterday trying to recover anything that might have survived the water soaked, smoke filled experience. We took her a new bed and a few groceries. I was just very happy to see my kid and her dog (My only grandchild) alive. I am very proud of her for keeping such a good attitude about the whole experience.
Two news stories about this:
Displaced residents return to apartment fire scene
Dozens displaced after apartment fire
Art, daily painting, fruit, grapes, Painting, Still Life, white
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
