THE MUSICIAN still in progress
24x24" oil on canvas work in progress
I'm bugged out. This caught my eye in the storeroom. Ya know when you spy a canvas that you haven't worked on in a while and you get this great feeling, like when you just got home from a shopping trip with your mom and you had a brand new set of crayons and a new coloring book? No? Well, it might have been a different set of art related circumstances, but I think you know what I mean.
Anyway, it's got a ways to go but it was a fun day. One of those days when you work without judgement, fear or insecurity. Nice.
Thank you to each and every person who has ever served in the armed forces. And thank you for stopping by, enjoy the weekend.

For me it was always visiting the office supply aisle. I still have to stop by whenever I'm out at a big box store, my eyes glaze over a bit and I'm giddy with the possibilities! Love this wip, amazing the jewels you just have laying about. Can't wait to see you work more of your magic!ReplyDelete
Looks good akready...way to go!ReplyDelete
Ah, you virtuosa! I am glad you could approach this with abbandonatamente and allegrezza.ReplyDelete
Also enjoyed seeing this in progress, and looking forward to the ovation at the finale. Brava!

This is going to be a lovely portrait. I can also appreciate the perfection in the perspective of the violin, having painted one before, it is so tough to get that right and this is spot on!ReplyDelete
Violins tis the season...lovely.ReplyDelete
I like where this is going...tough perspective but you nailed it.ReplyDelete
Your violinist is coming along beautifully, Suzanne. [I am avoiding gunkisms - I'm a b it gunked out] Sounds like you had a wonderful painting day!ReplyDelete
Wow you're really nailing that glow in the violin! Crayons and color book? Yeah I share that memory too... Beautiful painting.ReplyDelete
Suz, you are such a sweetheart! This looks amazing and I'm blown away by this girl's beautiful long and graceful fingers.ReplyDelete
Hi Suzanne!... You've beautifully captured the essence of making sweet music here in this portrait!ReplyDelete
You've encompassed that passionate and sopecial relationship between classical instrument and player. The eternal question remains however:
Who's playing who? I wonder! HA HA!!!
Good Painting... and Playin'!!!
How beautifully seen. Great structure Suzanne.ReplyDelete
Oh, I loved a new box of crayons! And I don't know how old you are but do you remember DoodleArt? (70s) The originals are back! In the canister! Except with superior markers. I can't wait to get one ; )
It's simply wonderful. Could this be you playing? As usual GREAT WORK!!ReplyDelete
Wonderful, the light and the look of concentration. I love violin music, so I'm always watching violinists.ReplyDelete
Love the composition and I think it is fair to say you are well on your way to another great painting, Suzanne.ReplyDelete
Suzanne, this is coming along SO beautifully! I love the violin...incredibly perfect!!! I am so looking forward to seeing this one finished.!!ReplyDelete
Suz, is there NOTHING you cannot paint? What a great, great composition - her arm, her instrument, her face - and yes, I know that feeling, and wish I could bottle it and give it away to every single artist. Fly FREE!ReplyDelete
This is already completely awe inspiring! I've been zooming in on the image to see just how you apply your brushstrokes. I love seeing works in progress because we can learn so much from them. This is clearly going to be another masterpiece! :0)ReplyDelete
Hi, I shared your art with a co worker last night,,,, She was just blown away...Her words....ReplyDelete
Your love of subject is glowing through this pieces. It is (already) stunning, Suz!ReplyDelete
This is just stunning Suzanne. :) What more can I say? GORGEOUS!ReplyDelete
You captured the moment- we can feel it!ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful painting
