Actually, It's Waltussin

'Actually, It's Waltussin' self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) A little better on the hand, a little less interesting on the bottle.

I Was So Sick Today...

It's really quite amzing that I'm now feeling well enough to sit up and draw. Hopefully the worst of the evil virus is over.

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

'Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man' self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) Tonight opened the tubes of Chinese watercolors I inherited from my mother. I wonder how long it's been since anyone's played with them... they seem to have some life left in them yet!

5 Flights of Stairs

'5 Flights of Stairs' self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) I only had to move one of the large paintings today, one that I can pick up and move myself. However, I cannot carry it up five flights of stairs by myself so I offer extended appreciation to my friend Guy for painting-moving above and beyond the call of duty, and also to his wife Melissa who provided the essential third set of hands at all the critical moments. So while you're browsing the web, go check out Guy's new photo-a-day project.

Portrait with a Green Stripe

'Portrait with a Green Stripe' self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) This is after Henri Matisse's 'Portrait with a Green Stripe' but in the reproduction I was using, the two sides of the face were much more similar in color, both yellow ochre. I thought this would be a simple exercise - bold lines, flatish colors - but this was that quite common case where an image that looks simple, simply isn't.

I Work Downtown

'I Work Downtown' self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) From the fourth floor kitchen, the setting sun could still be seen, lighting the skyscrapers Down below, a steady march of people headed for BART (the subway/metro) in complete shadow. Back to work for me.

Hot Beverage for a Cold Week (Tuesday)

What to Draw, What to Draw?

'What to Draw, What to Draw?' self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) It was easier to pick something of interest that happened to me each day in Thailand! But this is part of my life, too - figuring out what to draw and then posing for the picture.
