Mary is a new student in Kaye’s art studio, but her exuberant and fun personality makes it feel like she has always been there. Mary has been an artist her whole life and has taught art in grammar school for many years. She loves working with graphite, charcoal and pastels and is self-admittedly addicted to drawing giant heads – full sheet size. They are spectacular, and for me, who can fit a fully modeled detailed portrait into 5 inch square, are mind-boggling and worth a great deal of respect.
This portrait is also significant because with it I’ve reached a so important milestone of 20 – I am half done. It is all downhill from here.
