I Painted this Portrait Sketch at Halcyon Coffee

She was studying on her laptop.

She was studying on her laptop.

She wore heavy-rimmed black reading glasses that she would take on and off as she worked.  I decided to paint her without the glasses.  As you know, I usually try and paint my subjects without them knowing it.  It’s a tricky business, because people move around a lot!

    Hi, Mohsen.

    I just popped over and looked at your blog. I am amazed that you would be so gracious as to compliment my work. You are very, very good. Now, I am disturbed by some of the imagery, but intrigued. We should definitely keep in touch.

    You can contact me on my Facebook homepage under:lavanna martin, if you leave a “friend invite”.

    I am very curious to hear about your training, etc. Good luck and please, keep drawing and painting for us.

    Thank you,

    ~Lavanna Martin
