getting ready+a sale


reading
oil on canvas
18x17

Yvonne came this morning to make her choice of paintings for the show starting in May at the Visions II gallery. She will be showing paintings from a few years back: all figures including many angels. The title of the show will be SACRED MOMENTS. I will post details later on as well as some pictures, of course.
The above picture will not only be part of the show but is already sold! Thank you Yvonne.

a favorite model



Faith is one of my favorite models. always inventive in her poses and yet looking so natural and graceful. she gives a lot of herself; even her eyes participate in the pose. when the model gives out so much energy, it makes for a fantastic session.

portal


collage on canvas
10x8

things started out rather nicely on this one. except for the "portal" area which took me about 100 different tries before i was able to enjoy the result!
the piece looks like an underwater landscape to me. it reminds me of the videos on coral reefs sam and i used to watch over and over when she was little.

sketch class


period of no art work. not lacking the time. just not getting to it. will have to push myself. at least there is sketch class. not my favorite model last night, so played with the line. fun for a few poses and then they were all... how shall i call them? exhausted poses.

considering that i have simplify my dressing up to its bare bones, why these elaborately dressed women? some unconscious longing? i don't think so. rather a visual expression of some interior mood.
