Welcome to a brand new home for Mandarin Orange Monday – a new home for LorikArt in fact. After much hair tearing out and chocolate eating, I finally migrated to WordPress. I might describe those experiences in a separate post -but I will tell you my first mistake. There is WordPress.com and WordPress.org…I had no idea!
I have been working on quite a lot of faces lately, since I joined the 29 Faces Art Challenge – and it reminded me of how much I do enjoy “faces” or “portraits”. As a child I was always drawing faces, as a teenager it was myself or my current “crushes”…especially Elvis and my final major work at school was a portrait. And yes, in case you were wondering, it was quite orange – in a sort of Baroque style. Unfortunately I don’t still have that painting because I gave it to my “subject” – my best friend’s brother who I had a secret crush on too:)
Todays pics are of my son, Michael, looking very dashing I think wearing the hat we gave him on his birthday last year. I hope you enjoy the orangified results.
Michael is a musician. An album that he wrote and produced is about to be released. I will let you know when:)
