"Peep" oil on hardboard, 6x6" $99

This image fascinates me on so many levels. First, the projection of her head causing her skin tones to look so different. Light is an amazing thing. Then the patterns of her garment against the textural background. I may be forced to use this as a study and do a larger version of this.....

Devil's Duo, oil on canvas, 6x6" $99

The little community we moved to has a small airstrip surrounded by retired pilots. They are an interesting group. I find them to be amazingly close knit, fascinating life histories and still full of a sense of wonder and adventure. If I knew more about planes I would tell you about some. I guess there are some real rare jewels

Ties That Bind (study) 6x6" oil on hardboard $99

I've begun a series of figure paintings based on this lone female, swaddled in red fabric. This is a small study for the first painting. It helps me solve a lot of problems prior to tackling the larger image.

Drift, oil on hardboard, 6x6" $99

Okay! so it has almost been one year to the day since my last post. Believe me, I am well aware. First we got a puppy. She's a Leonberger (Google it!). That was April 8, 2015. Then we got the bright idea to buy a new place and sell our house, 3 studios and 5 acres with 25 years of  STUFF. Start cleaning out now people.  Seriously. It was awful. On top of it we bought a house that was built in 1892. It had been "remodeled" but not in a good way. We had it gutted. We moved in before there were faucets....My point is, painting just fell to the way-back-burner. I am finally feeling comfortable with all the change and back at it. 
Now about this painting. Blogspot changed while I was away. Images are loaded differently and "presto", all the color changed when I dragged and dropped. Somethings shouldn't be messed with. 
At any rate, we now live with lots of windows and about 180 degree of salt water. It seemed appropriate the the first piece back would be  WATER.

Harvest, oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

Still struggling to get studio time with the puppy. She is 12 weeks old today. I think it's getting easier...
