I began work with a young man yesterday and I will introduce him to you later in the week. Branson is eager to sketch and ready to create his own images. We began working with the power of the pencil....tonal marks...shapes and shadows ...and began his first portrait work. He worked solidly for over 90 minutes and then we took a break and he toured my studio. He is very interested in drawing dragons so I will head out and select some styles and figures of these Gothic creatures. He is anxious to begin work in colored pencils. I gave him a new sketch book for him to put his drawings in and keep them collected until we meet again. The two hours flew by and I asked him if he liked the work?.... and he said yes. This was time where one on one ...Branson was able to shine.
Today is kind of a catch up day of relaxation. Next week we are babysitting with the Spalding children and on Sunday there is another opening planned for the Collaboration exhibit at The Works Art Gallery. Hopefully the weather will be more cooperative for us all and there will be an opportunity to share the stories and messages in these art works.
Ken is making his delicious onion soup this afternoon...and I am quilting ...doing the laundry... and taking care of household duties. I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend and and some time to renew your spiritual energies and enjoy your families. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
