miya, mixed media 

practice sketches 

are somehow 


when I let go of a preconceived image and 

just draw what I see

a sampling from the david hockney portraits now 

on exhibit at the los angeles museum of art.

david hockney invited friends and acquaintances to sit for a portrakit

for three days.  he rarely goes out now because his 

hearing makes it cumbersome.  this was a good way for him to be with

people.  he said he got to know them and they

REALLY got to know him. 

the bright orange background, 

same chair  

and background colors 

made for a stunning show.

I always appreciate your visit and comments.  

thank you.

posting along with friends at paint party friday
