Here’s my latest. Doesn’t have anything like a title, because it’s barely on the canvas. I battled with this canvas and it’s still pretty gross, but I was really wanting to make it collage-like anyway so mabye I can cover up the boo-boos with some paper and stuff. I had the hardest time with the face because the original picture has the womans face pointing upward. I didn’t mean to make her confrontational, but it works. I had to keep moving her eyes, eybrows and cheekbones around. I think I finally got the structure down but she needs some serious touch-ups. Just stuff like shading and muscle configuration are still way off. It’s a bit grotesque to keep wiping of a face and put it back on, makes me feel like a plastic surgeon. Here’s some detail:

Got a phone call from Brian Taylor, assistant Prof of Art at Shorter, and he has scheduled me for a November 06 art show. I’ll be showing with an alumnus (?) Martie Moore who teaches here in Marietta. Of course, being a college they plan really far ahead, but it’s still very exciting. I have to give an artists talk. So mark your calendars! November 2-17 Katie Ward Knutson at Shorter College! Wonder what pieces will be around by then!
