November 28-December 5 Sketches

I decided to do a sketch a day in November and have decided to continue this challenge through December. They are all rough sketches.  I'm quite a bit behind in sharing my daily sketches, so I've grouped the images in groups so it isn't quite so overwhelming.  You may see November's individually on facebook here and December's here.  


November 28:  Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She is based on another pose of the same model from the 25th...  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess.

December 3:  Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She seems to be deep in thought.  I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be a fairy angel or a mermaid.
December 4:  Here is a sketch of a sunflower.  There is something about these flowers that calls to me...
December 5:  Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She seems as if she has arisen from the ocean's depths...  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a fairy angel or a goddess.

I hope that if you celebrate it you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I feel very blessed and thankful for so much.

There's still a few more days to catch the Día de los Muertos / Day of the Dead show at the San Juan Capistrano Library before it closes.  I'm sharing some of my pictures from the show, but there's so much more art, including some of mine own, there than is shown here.  I'd intended to go again and get more photographs, but my schedule precluded that.  I hope you will enjoy these snippets of some of my favorite pieces art from the exhibit.


"Amongst the Ancestors (Entre Los Antepasados)" & "Mariposa (Butterfly)" with and by Lisa Isabella Russo (Alex Ledante had me pose in his favorite Memento style...)

"Bride" by artist and curator Skye Amber Sweet

Two pieces by artist and curator Skye Amber Sweet

Día de los Muertos / Day of the Dead Framed Paintings at the San Juan Capistrano Library + October Sketches


Happy Halloween and Feliz Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead wishes!

I apologize for my long absence, I was under the weather and quite unfocused.  However, I am feeling better now and would like to share an upcoming event.  These framed pieces are my newest contribution to this year's Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead art exhibit at the San Juan Capistrano Library, there are also a few of my piece from last year featured as well.


The two large portraits are actually self portraits; one is darker and more abstract, one is more positive and idealized.  I submitted them to a different show, but the curator Skye Amber Sweet saw in them something more, she saw the feelings of life and death expressed in these two paintings and thus their inclusion in this show.  

San Juan Capistrano Library 
31495 El Camino Real
San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675
Library 949-493-1752 

The festival exhibit dates are officially Sun. 10/1 - Thurs. 11/28; however, it looks like there will be art drop offs on 10/1 and pick ups on 11/28, so I'd suggest any of the dates between the two. 
Gallery / Library hours to view art outside reception date is as follows:
Monday-Thursday 10:00a - 7:00p
Saturday-Sunday 9:00a - 5:00p 
Fridays- CLOSED

The date of our Day of the Dead event and reception is Saturday, 11/3 from 12-3.  In addition to the art, the exhibit and festival will include:
Aztec Dancers
Free Face Painting
Ballet Folklorico
Mariachis
Sugar Skull Making and Crafts
Pop Up Poetry
Alex Ledante and I will try to be there, most likely towards the end.  We'd love to see you if you're in the area, it's a wonderful exhibit and festival.  I'll try to get some photographs when we go.

Edit 11/2: I've ran out of time to do a separate post for PPF today, so I am sharing these completed paintings.
