This challenge has been so much fun and I have learned a great deal about drawing faces. I don't even feel bad that I didn't paint any - it was fun to just draw for a change! Now, back to painting! I have applied to 2 juried shows, and should find out if I am accepted during the second week of March. Keep your fingers crossed!
Forgot to post #4 last night. And here is Sparky, #5. both Carbothello pencil on paper. I think the next challenge I need is hands - notice the cropping!
I have signed up for a real challenge this month - called "30 in 30" which means I have committed to creating 30 paintings in 30 days during the month of January. Whew! I have to confess I am already behind because January 1 snuck up on me, but here is my first piece, and I will catch up at some point in the month. This is something a little different for me, watercolor pencil. I was inspired during the holidays by an artist I met at the Walnut Creek Artist's Market who uses this medium, Nancy Post Hunter. She is an artist and illustrator and does amazing work!

I'm Laurie Mansur and I love to paint. I usually spend a good part of each day looking at the world around me in terms of "how would I paint that?" or "what color is that?" My goal is to paint every day, and hopefully to post my paintings here. My other goal is to not be a procrastinator. We'll see how that goes!!
