98 Lisa (& trying to get back on the horse)

Facebook Faces, xibitz

I always have a hard time getting back into ‘work mode’ once I go on a vacation, or take a long weekend, and this week has been especially difficult, what with many distractions, including a houseguest from out of town, a mid-week radio interview with the band, and worries about my Dad’s health situation. But today, I managed to get back to a semblance of normalcy. Have gotten 2/3 of the way through the sketches for the next ‘Amish girl’ interior spots (and will probably finish those up tomorrow, and will post the finishes when I get to them), did another of the ‘museum figures’ (pictured below), came up with a ‘blown covers’ idea (actually finished that yesterday afternoon and will post on Friday), and got back on the horse with regards to my ‘facebook portraits’ self imposed summer challenge. Today’s portrait is of yet another high school classmate, one of my ‘art class’ buddies, Lisa, who makes a living these days doing horse sculptures. Did this one in my fallback ‘colored pencil/watercolor’ technique, since I didn’t have a lot of time for experimenting today.
