There is something so sci-fi real about these mannequins. I keep expecting them to march off the edge of that platform and do.........what? Some days it's difficult for me to decide between the portrait work and the fashion images. I've recently completed another 30x42" face. Well, completed might be a bit ambitious. Today was a fresh look and I think it will need some tweeking. However, it's darn close to what I invisioned. We'll see what happens.

"Rear View Mirror" oil on masonite 6x6"


Something about this made me think "how silly" but the colors and reflections grabbed hold and there it is. My time in the studio has been somewhat compromised lately so it's really hard for me to decide between "paint small, paint large". Today was small - TOMORROW IS BIG.

"Inside Out" oil on masonite 6x6"

Reflective images have this magical edge all of their own. The things we don't notice really make the whole. Plus the fact that I would have purchased and worn this skirt! (okay...all you who know me stop laughing) I really had to look hard to see what drew me to this in the first place. The "figure" sits back so quiet and yet the most important element in the framework. It was a challenge but fun to do.

"A Moments Notice" oil on masonite 6x6"

This young man was one of three sitting on a street corner just being young. I will eventually paint the group. They were so oblivious to everything and everyone around them. The streets were busy with shoppers and the street fair but all they new was their little group.

"Her Majesty" oil on masonite 6x6" SOLD

I've been so impressed with the image of this woman since I first saw it. I'm thinking about doing a larger, full figure piece. She just seems to know something that no one else is privy to. She's just looking right inside of you.
