Women Artists

I'm painting portraits of great women artists, who I admire, for my senior studio class. These are specifically women artists who are faculty at CCS. The first artist I chose to paint is fine artist, Nancy Thayer because I think her abstract paintings are so beautiful. Next I'm painting illustrator Cathy Gendron because I love her whimsical editorial illustrations. Finally I want to paint art historian and a fine artist, Beverly Smith because I really like her and I think  her extensive knowledge of European art and architecture is really impressive. These are at the sketch stage so far and I will be painting more women artists as the semester progresses. Stay tuned!
