Portrait of Kristen by Frances Kuta

When I see people that I immediatly think "I've got to paint them"....I ask them....they often say yes. Kristen posed for me and my Representational Art League over 2 sessions. We have about 12 portraits of Kristen and they can be seen this Art's Alive in Eureka at Studio S. They are all very different and it is fun to see each artist's view of Kristen. 14" x 11" oil on Raymar canvas panel

Little Doll by Frances Kuta

I've painted this little doll a couple times....this time I posed her so she would be "looking" right at me. Even though she is just a doll I felt as if she were coming to life as I sat there and painted was a strange experience...but fun! 12" x 9" oil on canvas Raymar panel CLICK HERE if you would like to bid on this painting.

At A Glance by Frances Kuta

I originally painted this model in 2006 as a beginner studying with Vanessa Lemon at Studio 2nd St. in Encinitas, Ca. They always had the best models and lighting. I didn't do a very good job back I decided to try again using the photo of this extraordinary model. I am much happier with this result and will enter this painting in the upcoming RAA Spring show....hope i get juried in :) 14" x 11" oil on Raymar canvas panel

Mom's Bean Pot by Frances Kuta

I did this painting from a live set up at a Qiang Huang workshop I attended. I love this pot as my mom had one just like it. I like the looseness of it. I used the biggest brush I could control and painted quickly...but slowed down in areas that needed precise shapes. 8" x 10" oil on canvas panel.
