It's been awhile since I posted any work here.  Have been super busy with classes, business, family, etc.  Thought I would post my partial progress on a figure I am making.  I sneaked some photos of a man who was reading the newspaper in a restaurant in Eureka Springs, Arkansas last fall.  Here is my project so far. 
I'm trying to get in all the large shapes first before getting into too much detail.  He is hoping for a name and a face today.  We'll see.  It's a gorgeous day in central Florida, and hubby wants us to pull weeds today.  Might have to squeeze in both jobs. 
Here is the photo:
As you can see, I've simplified, and am using a different color scheme.  The colors were appropriated from a Mary Cassatt print.  I am using much more black than she did.  I'm doing this piece as an assignment with my Art quilt class students.  (I always do the assignments that I give)  Will tweak and continue and post again when he is more complete.  It's a start!
