I would like to share my recent art and new insights with you. Lately, I have been drawing uniquely shaped, multiple face portraits and portraits on black and brown paper. I also have been exhibiting them. The uniquely shaped portrait on the bottom is on display at the Ashe Cultural Center until March 31st. Two of the portraits on black paper are currently on display at theNew Orleans Art Center until March 5th.
These portraits are the spontaneously styled portraits I have been doing since I was a child. My artist sister, Alma Bryan Powell, gives me the best art advice and she says, exposing these portraits helps to put all of my other art in context, including my iPad art and masks. This is because they are the most spontaneous. You may remember me calling them folksy women portraits. Alma said she doesn't believe they are folksy and after some thought I am now not calling them that.
As for new insight, while teaching, a teenage student said when you grow older, although you are not growing physically, you are growing mentally and in wisdom. That thought was inspiring.
