So lately, when I am not teaching knitting, I am working on a piece for the Westport Arts Center's call for artists with a theme "Home Sweet Home". Let me tell you, that is quite a tough one. As an artist, I do want to kind of stand out. Which I usually do. However, that can be outside of the NYC art scene quite a draw back. I feel like painting a house and call it "Home Sweet Home" is not just good enough for me. Then my wild mind (I do not want to call my thinking crazy, because it could be demeaning or unflattering expression since any artist's "crazy ideas" should be seen more or less as different and progressive) goes into a high speed and ---- creates art that not everyone can appreciate. It takes a special person to like my work. So if you are that special person and like my art, keep fingers crossed for my drawing to be accepted into the above mentioned show.

Few days ago I decided to pull my firm pastels out of a drawer and draw an imaginary portrait. I used a different technique with these pastels and I love to work with them now. I am ready to draw many portraits.
Maybe I should put my soft pastels on the shelf for a while? No, actually I will use both of them at the same time. I like that idea. And I will use a pencil too. And perhaps even watercolor.... and oil stick... and ........ LOL
Above drawing is "Somebody #2" and drawing below is "Somebody #1". I call these portraits "Somebody", because they are actually nobody. Hmmm, should I call them "Somebody Nobody"? They are just figments (is that English-English or American-English or both Englishes expression?) of my mind. And more to come. I love this technique....
If you haven't seen CelloPointe performance (ballet/cello) yet, you could make time to see this small ensemble in action. You'll enjoy it - that is if you like classical music and ballet like me.
The performance is @ mmac, 248 W 60th, New York, NY on March 24th 2013 @ 3pm.
Purchase tickets ahead of time and you save $5
You can LIKE them on Facebook.
My drawing, which was inspired by CelloPointe performance, is on THIS PAGE (if you didn't see it yet).
Perhaps, I'll see you there :-)

I created a drawing inspired by their performance and the drawing now is being used to raise some money for this company. You can donate money to their cause and CelloPointe will send you an 11'x18'' poster, which looks just like the original.
I no longer have the original, but I do have a print :-)
If you wish to donate in exchange for the poster all you have to do is click HERE.
