I took a friend of mine out of a painting I was doing and replaced her with someone else as the other person seemed to fit better.  So that she wouldn't feel so bad about me taking her out I went ahead and used her in a drawing instead.  This is done from life in three separate sittings (one to get the background blocked in, one to get her and the goats blocked in and one to block in the values.  Then I spent many hours on it refining at home.  There are of course some issues I'm noticing and I believe I've overworked it in areas, but it's done and I'm sure she'll be pleased.   It's 18" x 24" and done in vine and regular charcoal.

This is a great talent you have!  Do you have a website with your works?

Not really.  I had a crappy website for my goats that I had a little of my artwork on, but I don't really have a website yet.

Thanks guys!

I've only just really started doing this.  I'm going back to school (at the age of 38) to FINALLY study art and you can't even imagine the difference in my work from last year to this year (I just started my 2nd year of school this fall).  I sold one drawing this year and have two people looking at a watercolor that I completed last year  that was accepted in to one of the most prestigious juried shows around here (in fact, one of my instructors didn't get anything accepted and the other only had one.......both of my submissions were accepted......I never thought I could have something good enough to be accepted in to ANY show!).  I didn't know what to price the watercolor at so I had it appraised for sale and I'm glad I did because I would have priced it FAR lower than that what it was estimated at (yowsers!).  I figured at the price quoted to me that no one would buy it, but there are two people who have contacted me that are very interested.  I also have two commissioned paintings that I need to complete over Christmas break (even starting on those is a scary prospect to me) and there is a bank that has bought a holiday card design from me last year and this year. 

So, for still being in school and having a full two years more I'm doing alright.  I have a long way to go of course, but I'm SO excited about my progress in such a short time.  Heck, before last year I'd never painted (using watercolors or oils....I did paint at one of those "paint your own pottery" places however does that count?), and had never drawn people.  Before starting classes I basically used a #2 pencil, a ball-point pen and markers to draw cartoonish animals. 

I do have a class coming up that will help me to get something set up to display my work online.  I just haven't had the time yet to figure it out on my own with classes and such.
