and on to June- / by Sheree Greek

Not sure about you all, but May has flown by in my neighborhood.

I have started a couple of projects this months and I am sure that they will take me into June and possibly beyond.

I started an Angel series this month and hope to draw Seven Of the High Archangels. Research has been fascinating as I read, paint, and listen for inspiration.

Here are a few images of the start-

The second project I finally started was an acrylic paint on canvas piece. It measures approximately 16x36 inches in size. I have been working on the sketch for a few weeks and finally felt ready to start the painting phase.

The background and girl went down relatively quickly, I was pleasantly surprised. My original inspiration included an elaborated mask on the painted face of a girl. As I drew in the mask I had the feeling this painting was going to take another direction. I have decided to take some time and look at the painting from a few different angles. The black markings are charcoal. When I left the gallery last night I washed them all off and will take a fresh look at my girl today when I walk into the space. Fresh eye possible fresh idea.

And so it goes ...hurry up and wait- see you all in June folks!
