A Couple of Hardbodies

A Couple of Hardbodies — Sketchbook Project
Please click on this one — it looks way better big!
I know that all I’ve been showing you all lately is sketches, but I am painting, really. I sketch at night, and paint during the day, trying to get this commission done so I can finally go home!
I stayed up until 3am last night working on this one…I am addicted to sketching now! Now I’m tired, and not looking forward to painting at all…oh well.
Anyways, I was wracking my brain, trying to come up with an idea for my “boys and girls” theme, while browsing my europe photos, and I found this one, of David. The reference photo is of the bronze replica at Piazza Michelangelo. I thought, why not do a sculpture of a man and one of a woman, hence…this sketch. I’ve never seen Victory, but would have loved to have made it to the Louvre. I got the reference photo from Google…Enjoy!

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
