LMAO. Now those are some real faces.

thec said...

Such timeless beauty (and what fun to read in your post this saturday night).

I can see your faces in theirs without much assistance or stress in my thoughts.

Question, are the lovelies of yesterday where you visit for some of your inspiration?

They are indeed precious. Sultry, beautiful women who are aware of their power (and not afraid to hide the same), are enjoyable to my eye.

Those are faces, Man...No sheeeit!!!
A friend of mine who died long time ago said that they had the looks that separated women from females!
(Many people may get angry about this comment but my friend is dead and there is very little you can do about it)

These are REAL women....
Qué gusto da da venir por tu blog Alberto!

"I don't have to back to them for inspiration, I have them memorized"

I can certainly see why. They are loverlies and have inspired me.

When I do draw portraits I have to clear my head or I'll have bits of each person in my work, and that's not what I'm getting paid to do.

It's when I sculpt that I let my imagination go where it wills. It's just my creativity and a piece of clay or concrete or whatever.

I do begin with a plan, but once started, I then let the medium and mood determine. At times I'm just as much in the dark as those watching. If there are any. Often not.

Enjoy your travels. I'm running off next week myself to a se asian regional design conference. Looks to be an interesting mesh of the minds.

Process Junkie said...

ThecSee, that's the beauty of not getting paid, LOL!! I can just mix it all real nice and to hell with caution, heh, heh!

You're a woman of many talents, I knew you were an intercontinental graphic/web designer as well as a successful enterprenuer and by your own admission a portrait painter but all these other passions...wow, I'm more and more impressed with each passing day.

After I found out who you really were I understood why you were so in love with me and quite frankly, I don't blame you, I'm in love with myself too :)

All kidding aside and just between me and you, what on earth were you drinking the night you left that fatal comment on this blog? Now, don't get me wrong, I'm glad you did, it made for high drama and since this blog does not have a script, it also initiated a chain reaction kind of thing with the subsequent posts being a direct effect of our "encounter" and also what I hope is the beginning of a long lasting friendship, but I have to say that thing puzzles the heck out of me to this day! Maybe one day we'll both sit on bamboo chairs and drink some tea as we contemplate the sunset somewhere in the South Pacific and you'll tell me what really happened.

I'd love to see some of your portraits and sculptures, I attended an art high school to study painting and sculpting, ironically, I do neither, I do hope you won't mind showing them to me, I have a tremendous amount of respect for you, you should have told me who you were from the beginning, this internet with the annonimity kills me, on the other hand I understand a woman of your prestige wouldn't want to be seen around a pervert like me, that's the story of my life :) Good luck at the conference!

Kristen, drawn4life, Rubio Thank you much, the pleasure is all mine.

thec said...

AAAAAAAhhhhh [grand expelling of breath], back from the conference a couple of days. Totally shagged out and blown all the hades and back and am now just gasping for air.

HC is not a nice landing for a lucky lady and I did not get lucky but the results blew me away even though it was a freezing 11 degrees [shudder].

"I knew you were an intercontinental graphic/web designer as well ... "

Hmmmm, not sure how unless you are sporting the clever. But then, I'm not up on all.

"After I found out who you really were I understood why you were so in love with me and quite frankly, I don't blame you, I'm in love with myself too :)"

Ahhhh, dmn, you are sounding deadly serious so looks like I may be caught out, without a string to my name.

"sit on bamboo chairs and drink some tea as we contemplate the sunset somewhere in the South Pacific and you'll tell me what really happened"

The South Pacific is a loooooooong flight for me (I'm in Thailand) so it'd have to be half way, or at least Phuket, which ever pleases.

"you should have told me who you were from the beginning, this internet with the annonimity kills me, on the other hand I understand a woman of your prestige wouldn't want to be seen around a pervert like me"

Hmmmm, there you go again. Must be fishing as there is no prestige on my part. I'm an honest women, pounding away with an honest job. I use my passion for the industry to pound away at injustice, and yes, I do screw up along the way. Human I am with a temper to boot (but you already know that ;-).

Nice to be back where it is warm though. Give me 35 for the relief and btw, I hate to wear shoes.

Andn next time, please remind me to wear a woolie or less ...

thec said...

"with a temper to boot (but you already know that"

[yes, I'm still shagged out so I find myself correcting my own posts]

In my tiredness, your post led me to believe you knew of my fiery personality, but when I read it back, realised it made no sense at all.

"I understood why you were so in love with me and quite frankly, I don't blame you, I'm in love with myself too"

Agreed. That is the beauty of this relationship. We can leave the half of us incognito as long as there is a ready supply of the necessities of life.

Process Junkie said...

LOL! you are too funny but correct, I make no sense at all but I love you. You are indeed a very important woman, do not worry, your secret is safe with me;)

Phuket is fine with me, I have some friends in Singapore, that might be closer to you.. .where is my damn map of southeast Asia??

At any rate, I'm glad you're back, safe and sound, without aiming to come across as a rude and uneducated thug I have to say here in NYC I'm freezing my testicles, but then again you know I'm into pain so that's fine.

So you're not the eccentric millionaire, woman of the world, president of 10 organizations I thought you were, so what? I still love you, for the record, I did think you had a temper even though I did not write it down, but I also have a temper and that can only be good for our relationship. I'm broke also, maybe we should just get together, I'dmove to the islands and starve ourselves painting, sculpting and drawing, we'll set up an atelier by the beach, I'll give workshops on figure drawing of the cartoony kind and you organize the local women to rebel against the male dominated industry, it could be magic, I'm salivating..(yet again) at the possibilities this merger can generate.

Go get some rest, we have a lot totalk about :)))))

thec said...

Poor you in NYC, you who craves pain. Need I say more?

No, not an eccentric millionaire, just a poor designer scrabbling for a living. Getting by. Just getting by.

“.. maybe we should just get together, I'd move to the islands and starve ourselves painting, sculpting and drawing, we'll set up an atelier by the beach, I'll give workshops on figure drawing of the cartoony kind and you organize the local women to rebel against the male dominated industry, it could be magic, I'm salivating..(yet again) at the possibilities this merger can generate.”

:-) ... and then life comes in and grabs you by the butt. With bills to pay, taxes too, and what about the dentist, and the cable bill, and who’s going to pitch in for those tickets to the met? Reality strikes and strikes again.

“you organize the local women to rebel against the male dominated industry”

One of the best kept secretes ever is that it’s not the men running this country. Thai lasses are sweet, kind, and in total control. Make no mistake about it. The men only think they are.

In the west women stand up for their rights, loudly. And the men stand up too, loudly. But two louds do not make a right at times.

Out here they dip their heads low and smile, then smile some more. Everything soft, smooth.

The men relax, become pliable (in a good way), and liking it very much, all the way. Well done, very well done I say. Men are happy, women are happy, life is good. Darn good. (Not all is perfect, but close, very close).

But too late in life for me to change. This fire erupts even when I’m least expecting it. I imagine yours is the same? I do so admire thai sweetness though. It's an art in itself. But don't peo a thai as they have ways, yes, they have ways.

"Go get some rest, we have a lot to talk about"

Almost rested up. Almost. But it's the beginning of the month ... again. So much to do.
