Community 2016

Oil on linen panel
 16 x 20



























I was recently looking at the art of Samuel Bak. A holocaust survivor whose paintings represent his attempts to piece his world back together after being so utterly shattered.  His work resonated with me as I feel my world under threat, not piecing it back together but trying to hold it together.  So, I copied his painting as art therapy.  I added the capitol building in the background.

Van

Gouache on illustration board
9 x 12 inches



























I haven't done any painting in months because I have been working through some of the drawing courses at Watts Atelier on-line.  I am far from finished with them but decided to jump ahead into one of the painting classes. This was an assignment from the Gouache Phase 1 class.  I am very happy with it.  A few more portraits in black and white and I will move on into color.  I have learned so much. It has been terrific.
