"Head Study 3"

Pissed Off
 6"x6", oil on gesso board

I did this painting last week, but didn't shoot till today.
This painting is done from a woman's mugshot, looking very pissed off.
I am not sure that she is a celebrity or not. Maybe she is.....

I signed up some art classes at nearby community college: Oil painting and Print Making. The Fall term  started two weeks ago, keeping  me very busy. Also signed up Boot Camp style  exercise program. Boot camp is Monday through Thursday, from 5:15 till 6:30. This program is a merciless real killer.  Through oil painting class, I am learning how to build the canvas from the scratch. Go to Home Depot, get the materials for stretcher bars, learn  how to cut the bars, stretch canvas on the frame, prepare canvas with gesso .....

I get more fit and stronger and paint till 100 years old!!
Sounds like a good plan?

I love your plan, Hye! I hope I can paint to 100, too. I did start rather late.

This is a great painting. Love the grays around yer eyes and under the chin. Lovely warm colors on the cheeks and forehead. Very nice!

Getting fit and living and painting to 100 does sound like a good plan but we hope you can fit some paintings in now . . . missing your posts.
