Over the summer of 2016 I attended the NAEA School for Art Leaders. This program was life altering in so many ways and is now coming to a close. My "capstone" is written and all that remains is the creation of my "yearbook" slide - including an artistic self portrait representing who we are as leaders. Oh, and of course, the actual LEADING is still to come!
I decided to explore the idea of a still life as a self portrait once again. This is how I viewed all the birds and rabbits that I painted a few years back and I wanted to explore this idea further. The painting I am working on includes three objects; a rock, a tiny, empty terracotta pot, and my giant, red, hand-made sketchbook that was my bible for the program. The objects symbolically and realistically represent me as a leader - at least in my head!
Here's where things stand as of day 1. I'm hopeful for the results, but mostly I'm happy to be painting again.
Work in Progress
Not everything is completed in one day or in one painting session. This page will track the works that take more time than daily paintings.
