Peruvian Spoon Seller

This is a colored pencil drawing that I still haven't finished, but I loved working on the face. This woman sold wooden spoons on the street. When I asked to photograph her so I could draw her, she was so funny, she kept saying how she felt like a movie star :)

Those eyes have so much wisdom and life experience behind them, I wish I could have talked to her more. She was very sweet and had the most endearing laugh.

Hopefully one day I'll finish the background. This has been one of my very favorite portraits that I have done. I wish I had more control with a paintbrush so I could do more stuff like this. Until then, back to the grindstone.

Whole Virtue Series

A dear friend of mine from the ward asked to see the whole collection of my Women's Virtues series. Here it is :) I really loved this series, it was just so natural and it really resonated with me. I loved looking at these faces and trying to discover what good might be inside the eyes and hearts of these women I drew.

Figure Sculpture

I've been in a figure sculpting class, and I have so much more respect for sculptors! I've discovered it is like doing a drawing from 360 different angles. I really have enjoyed it though. It is really helping me understand the human form better. And thank goodness for BYU so I got to sculpt someone in a swimming suit :).

If I could get a degree in everything, I would get one in sculpture too. Love it. Why can't we do everything at once?
