I came across these photos of drawings by Laurie Lipton, an amazing artist that was featured in beinart.org

Her drawings are immaculate and truly extraordinary. She is inspirational for me, as I really want to develop my drawing skills.

Le Danseurs Sunday, Aug 21 2011 

I painted this puppy from March 2010 until July 2010. It took me four months of back and forth gesso-ing, repainting, contemplating, hating, loving, and dire frustration to finish this. It’s hanging up in our living room, completely out of place in my parent’s house, and probably requires it’s own wall/room to be appreciated. Nonetheless, here it is.

I was inspired to paint this after seeing “La Danse” by Henry Matisse, painted in 1910. I wanted to practice my skills with the human body and form, particularly in motion. I still have a lot more fine tuning, and kept it safe with using just red, black, and white with this painting.

Best. Card. Ever. Sunday, Aug 21 2011 

Another year =) Friday, Aug 19 2011 

Yesterday I had the joy of celebrating another year of my life. 28. An age that really doesn’t signify much, except that in two years I will be 30. I had the honor of sitting on my couch, watching my dysfunctional family go through their everyday range of motions, realizing that I am kind of lucky to hold on to some sort of sense in my senseless world.

We ended up eating dinner at Claim Jumpers (yum!!!), where they have THE BEST chicken pot pie. My sister got me a cake from Deerfield Bakery, local in our community and absolutely heavenly in taste and sight. I realized that as I have gotten older, I have become more reclusive in my social life yet more closer to the people that are immediately around me. You know what? It’s the best feeling ever. It signifies that I am finally in a comfortable, secure place in my life where I don’t have to feel obligated to do anything else except be myself =)
