Breeze, oil on canvas 6x6" $99

I didn't intentionally make the background so close to the skin tones. That sounds ridiculous since I mixed the paint. What I mean is the light, airy feeling of the subject dictated how I thought the background should look.  Mixed it up, brushed it on, stepped back and there you have it!

My Drivers License Says Blonde..., oil on paper, 6x6" $99

This oil painting paper is so fascinating! The paint responds totally different than anything I've ever painted on. I've been tempted to stop using because it challenges me in ways I'm not sure I want to deal with.  However, the results are so interesting that I'm going to stay with it.

Escape, oil on paper 6x6" $99

I love doing lower legs and feet.  I had plans to do an entire series of legs and feet with interesting shoes.  It may still happen

For The Moon, oil on paper 6x6" $99

Something went terribly wrong when I was working on this. When I stepped back to look all the proportions were off.  I grabbed a brush and started literally pushing paint around. The final outcome is much rougher than I usually paint but I love it!
