Make Art Everyday 2019 :: May Highlights

In the month of May flowers in the garden began to bloom in mass. Because of this change in season, I began to shift my creative focus towards floral still-life paintings, with the intermittent portrait sketch.

Day 151: The beginnings of a drawing of Naomi. I started to realize I wanted to spend some more time on my portrait drawings, developing them more than most opportunities afforded, so as a result, I would work on a drawing over a few days… I love all stages of the drawing process and feel that even incomplete phases are beautiful.

Thank you as always for supporting my journey and looking in on what I have been creating in the daily art project.
