Day 2 Mr. D, Painting Paul

(first published May 18, 2008, edited 10/13/2017). I am re-releasing these blog posts to communicate how I traveled the journey to artist...mistakes I made, things I tried, money I wasted, hours spent researching. I plan to boil all this down into a simple formula for you to Restore Your Soul | Jumpstart Your Creativity.

First day jitters. Whew. After watching Sunday's commission demo's, all of us were feeling a bit in over our heads. Kinda glad to get the first one down. However, I had a few points going in...I walked Les through getting his email, and he was totally flustered. Muttering things just under his breath...I asked him to sit still in his frustration so I could enjoy it a bit. And to have compassion for what I was going to feel under HIS instruction!

4 easel positions, draw numbers, #1 gets to pick their position first. I was #4...and got the one I wanted (the only one left).

We're sitting at breakfast now, with Day #3 model, Georges...who appears to have Greek blood...and a wonderful profile. More about him later...just a teaser!

Back to Paul...and a few photos. 

If you enjoy my blog, please feel free to forward to your friends and fellow artists.

UPDATE: Leslie B. DeMille passed away in October, 2017. He will be missed. vr
