Joy Thomas: "The Art of Portrait Drawing"




Congratulations to Joy Thomas and her very fine book which was recently released, The Art of Portrait Drawing

I picked up this book on the west coast a few months ago and I was impressed by the way Joy teaches life drawing techniques. Writing a book is a huge undertaking and yours is a treasure to own, thanks, Joy!

Glad you posted this Linda. I was going to make an announcement. I found it at Amazon while I was updating my bookstore and it's now one of the featured books on my bookstore home page.

Congratulations, Joy!

Thanks so very much...it's great to know that someone I respect has given my book such a gracious nod of approval.

The book was a lot of fun and...trouble! I'm so glad it's finally finished...I'm getting lots of positive feedback from here and abroad.

I apologize for being so absent from this fabulous forum...but I've been distracted by many life changing events that I'm sure many of you have experienced--such as; elderly loved ones nearing the end of their lives (my mother-in-law in particular who was featured in my book), working hard to help our two sons throw big weddings and finally we recently sold our beloved farm, home and studio of 23 years! I'm in the market for property in Louisville, KY a four hour drive...so my house-hunting trips have kept me on the road. I will be moving in the next few weeks and hoping to get there before the birth of our first grandchild..due at the end of December!

I've been busy with commissions and just returned from California where I was working on a job in Long Beach.

Many thanks to you and to Cynthia for posting the book for me.

I've missed you all!

Once I get settled in my new home I promise to be more active with the forum...wish me luck as I sort and pack 23 years of junk from my home, studio and farm. Whew, I really dread it.
