Practice


9x12" oil on masonite
Last night, I was making panels in my new work room and my son came down and asked if I'ld paint him.
this is the result - a quick 40 min. study (about as much as- even an eager- 9 yr old can take) he was a great model, busy with his Nintendo DS, wearing a huge sweatshirt, I think he only said "Are you done yet?" about 28 times, which isnt bad for 40 min.
****meanwhile**** This months Art Calender magazine has a great article about DailyPainters.com. I got my copy at Borders but you can also see it here. And I"M QUOTED in it!! cool.

Debbie,
How great, he must be interested and that is a long sit for a nine year old. You did great in the short 40 minute session. Before all of the game boys; Xmen on TV use to work for me and if the TV was high enough I could get a pose with the head up a little. :0)

I think I should be able to get a few paintings done while they play Guitar Hero...if I can take listening to Barracuda over and over ;-)

I get my 12 year old to pose- and I have to paint fast- but the worst os my 16 year old- he is so self conscious- he fidgets and wants to see the progress and frets over the line of his nose, etc... the most lovely thing about 9 is they still trust you!
