Portrait in Oil
This is one of the pieces I am working on. A Portrait of a beautiful girl. Zakiya is my babysitter and very kindly agreed to let me paint her portrait. I am hoping if I blog about it, that will give me the push I need to finish it. Sometimes the creative instincts flow, other times, like this past few weeks it feels like I am trying to force blood from a stone. All I know for sure is that a day without painting is a miserable one, soon as I paint, draw or sculpt it feels like a great big mean noisy pteradactyl has lifted off my shoulders.
