Soho Crying - My interpretation of the William Kentridge drawing

This week I visited The Modern in Fort Worth. The current exhibit is "William Kentridge: Five Themes". It was my first introduction to the South African Artist. I sketched his drawing "Soho Crying" Drawing for the film Stereoscope. Visiting this type of exhibit is always a good time for me to exercise my drawing skills. I seem to forget how much I enjoy drawing.

If you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area between now and Sept. 27, you should plan to visit the exhibit at the Modern.

Building Sand Castles - The first of a new blog

I'm posting this painting to introduce my new blog Beach Paintings. The beach has been one of my favorite vacation destination most of my life, but living in Dallas, it isn't as easy to get to the beach as I would like. I hope to catalog my memories of the beach with new paintings.

This painting was painted after a great vacation with my long time friend and her daughters and granddaughter. Sabre (the granddaughter) loved this painting of her and has proudly hung it in her room (the best compliment ever).
