Every Wednesday I have a model in my studio and I invite a few other artists to paint with me. This is a color sketch of Cynthia...this painting is only 5 x 7"....i am planning on painting a larger one of Cynthia...the pose, lighting and clothing and..of course...Cynthia's face...were pure inspiration!

My friend Les and I were setting up a still life to paint...there she was again with one of her beautiful kimonos...we draped it behind this little teapot...i was thrown back by the beautiful colors...a delicate challenge to paint!! I have not done this scene justice in a painting yet...but it is on my to-do list!

Hey guys....can you believe how long it has taken me to set up a blog...but I've finally done it.
Here I can set it up so...if you like...you can subscribe to my daily ramblings as a new artist...but more importantly... see my new paintings as they come off the easel :)
This one I LOVE. The red cloth is actually a kimono that my artist buddy Leslie owns. She has many beautiful garments...she usually brings them to our painting sessions and we work them into the composition.
