After all the excitement seeing the swing dancers at the World War II memorial last weekend I just had to do a quick sketch of two of the dancers caught in action. They do a wonderful show...entertain the visitors and get many up on their feet to try their hand a swinging! Such fun to watch!
I am also working on a larger piece of my brother. I flew to Chicago and he sat for me to paint him from life. He sat and looked out the window, playing his harmonica. He played for a long time...thanks to me! My challenge was getting the likeness and capturing his hand gestures without making him stop. This is a work in progress...lots left to do but I am excited about it.
