I painted this small one quickly after a longer study. Its nice to have all the colors mixed, ready and just get it down. A foreign tourist watched me for a while and then exclaimed, "Isn't it wonderful, you just stand there and paint!!"...  sounds so easy.

Model in a Red Dress

This was painted from a live model in two long sessions. We all thought the dress and shoes reflected her bold personality. I was going for a color statement based on the red chemise.

This was done quickly with the palette paint remaining after a concentrated effort on the first version. I think the expressionistic paint strokes and color came together well in the smaller, faster version.
