Three Muses Challenge: Movies (plus a portrait)


please click on image for larger view


portrait by Sherry Pollack


It was hard to choose a subject for this week's Three Muses Challenge on "The World of Movies." I finally decided to showcase one of my favorite actresses, Meryl Streep. The faces are from various publicity photos found in a Google search. Other image credits: graphicsfairy and Dover.

And...I'm also posting a scan of a portrait I drew of Meryl earlier this year, from an older photo. I've been taking portrait drawing lessons from my art journaling teacher, Carol Zika, and am continuing to practice this skill in a weekly studio class. Challenging, but so much fun!
