Being an MOB isn't so Bad...







In our life there is a single colour, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the colour of love.
Marc Chagall



No, being an MOB isn't bad at all, it's actually quite sweet! A couple of new favorite shots from Kaitlyn's wedding day. I got some books on Chagall out of the library today. In addition to working on my new portrait series (I have several volunteers in line already! Yay!) I want to do a series of drawings and possibly prints about the wedding. I've been looking at some of Chagall's brides for inspiration. I know from past experience that it is important for me to reserve time to do more personal work along with the portraits, otherwise I can feel completely drained by being with people all the time in my studio. I'm a true Pisces in this regard - very impressionable - and like a sponge I soak up others' energy. So for balance I'll need some alone projects.
