15 DAYS To Go..EXCITING TIMES...365 Days Of Drawing

15 days to go on the daily drawing 2010 challenge...exciting times ahead, a 52 head portrait project, my second sitter painted today which met the drawing challenge.

I can't say much more except my sitter today was THE most amazing man, 97 years-young, painted in a freezing cold studio, with a life story to tell of such intelligence in career, integrity in life, and overall brilliance with a healthy splash of good humor. I am so privileged to meet and paint people like this. For want of a better word. Wow. ...a few people in the studio alongside, recording, photo'ing, and just plain enjoying the moment, as did I!

Bravo Johanna, you have much to be proud of! The article in the Ventura County Reporter is wonderful. We are all counting down with you!

How exciting, Johanna..

I for one will be sad when your challenge ends, but I know it will be a relief. However, I am really looking forward to learning about your new adventure!!

The tour and the luncheon were fun... I missed you though. Hope to see you soon.
