thebaronessvon photos downloadAttempts at neutral colors fail, because I just get too excited about glowing edges. I'm so excited about new work, and grateful for some time to dedicate myself to this. Living simply: yoga, paint, eat, sleep. Repeat!!!

thebaronessvon photos downloadOff to a weird start, but that comes as no surprise. The color is a serious mess already, but I like to ruin and then rescue my work, I get to be both the Damsel in Distress and the Knight in Shining Armor.

thebaronessvon photos downloadA rare and true privilege, to draw the monk Ren Chung, at the feet of the Buddha, near the cave where the Master Monk Daoxuan achieved enlightenment!!!! Tourists are not typically allowed up here above the temple in the mountains. He's so funny as well, we had a wonderful conversation. He served tea and fruit, took my friend and I all over the temple lighting candles and incense, and then we went up here. I was super nervous about the drawing after all the build up, but it turned out really well I think. #xian #china #lifedrawing #draweveryday #sacredspace

thebaronessvon photos downloadThis is the Tiger Spring, where I happened upon a little photo shoot. I'm going to develop this into a painting. The story and the spring are ancient, the sculpture is from 1983, the clothing is traditional on the model. I love the overlapping of ancient and contemporary China, the phoniness and the authenticity all at once. #hangzhou #china #doinitintherealworld #tigers
