I started painting again. It’s a still life and it’s taking up so much of my time! I notice that it takes me hours and so much dedication and all the while I wonder how people can paint portraits from life, and how the model can stay so still for so long. Eventually I do want to paint a portrait, though. Hopefully I’ll have one done by the beginning of next semester. Any volunteer models I could use this summer?

I’m trying to make up for last semester since I didn’t complete any portfolio-worthy pieces even though I had a drawing class. I’m really excited to transfer to UH and can’t wait to see what kind of direction my work takes once there. Next year should be fun.
