A Boy Behind a Girl


The last few days the skies have been full of dense haze or rain, and so instead of painting outside I've been working on business. It's not always such a bad thing to take a break from making art, but today I thought I'd get ill if I didn't paint or draw or something. 

I took this photo back in January, and it's been simmering in my brain ever since. I like the unclear meaning. In fact, I think that is what I like about painting and drawing- the ambiguity of meaning that is possible. 

This weekend I worked on my new website. I cancelled my FASO website and designed a new one using Other People's Pixels.  FASO is great, and they've always given me excellent technical help, but I was tired of spending $28 a month. OPP is $13 a month if you pay for a whole year in advance, and $16 monthly. So far I'm very pleased, and thought you might be too. 


  1. I am completely in love with this drawing Taryn. I'm with you, there's something here that is not defined that I find very appealing. :) And I took a peek at your new website and think it looks great! The pics load very fast and it is clean and professional. But your resume opens as a word doc? Is that right? I got a little download button that popped up instead of just showing me the page.

  2. Oh thank you Crystal, the queen of faces!! My resume is a PDF file, but I might change it to a separate page on the website instead- it is still a work in progress, I guess.

  3. I have to comment on this drawing because it's simply wonderful. It looks more like a black and white photo than a graphite sketch.

  4. This drawing is fabulous - lots of movement. You are such a great artist in every thing I see you do.

    Interesting about the new website. Thanks for passing the info on.I enjoyed looking. I have been on FASO for 5 years now and that is a lot of money and now I am blogging my energy goes into that.
