Music Monday - Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?

I recently downloaded some new soundtracks on my iPod for Life Drawing - one of them from Don Juan DeMarco (with Johnny Depp in the title role). Which is  a lovely soundtrack. Much of which is based on this song from Bryan Adams -

FIgure Friday

 Clothed, mixed-pose day.

 Lots of shorter poses..

 We had a very lyrical model...

 She was a delight to draw.

I'm slowly feeling like I'm getting back into the groove... I'm not IN it yet, but getting closer!

Studio Tour (Critique Meeting) -

 This month's critique meeting was at fellow-member, Michelle Waldele-Dick's wonderful studio!

 Michelle specializes in narrative still life paintings.

 Many are whimsical or tell very interesting stories.

 There are paintings in every corner!

 (and mantel and floor space.....

 ....and wall and dresser top and.....)

 But not only are there paintings on every side, but so many fabulous objects that she uses as reference and inspiration.

 Shelves full them!

 Shelves and shelves - 

 - and shelves full!

 Plus tableaus and vignettes on all sides...

It's a magical, artsy, wonderful space.

(And do check out Michelle's work. She's a beautiful painter!)

Music Monday - The Mercurotti

The longer I watched this 'duet' the more I liked it. Marc Martel has a great voice, and does a surprisingly good impression of Freddy Mercury (he is the lead singer of Queen Extravaganza, a Queen tribute band - endorsed by the original members of Queen). It's pretty great:

I do miss Freddy.'Love Queen....
