*Arletta from the Pay It Forward Group:* ““First of all, I love the colors; second of all, I love what the turbulence in the hair represents – the emotional content of the piece. And, I don’t know, it’s beautiful. I’m not an art critic! But, to me, this piece is so full of frenetic energy and the want hiding behind it.”

This is a colloboration with Amy, I will post her picture she did of herself here…..

    Thats stunning work BillyLee~! Good to see you around. Havent sighted you for a while. :D

  • Thanks D, I hav been around, still addicted. Thanks for liking it, I am trying to get looser, if you know what I mean….next semester I am going to get really loose and focus on abstract….I reckon that will be more of a challenge….great to hear from you also.

    instant fave !!

  • Really, its so weird, because it was done in an afternoon session, maybe working looser and faster and easier is the way to go…instead of planning and drafting etc…..

    Absolutely gorgeous! I wish I could draw like that.

  • Liz you can draw like that…..three years of art school let me draw like that, I would never show you what I did in year 1 …..oh my gosh it was BAD! I could know you can do it, its a matter of training and learning…..I reckon if I can do it anyone can. B
