Outer Banks Cloud Study

I haven't had much time lately for my painting due to a school function and project I am involved with for my son's school. So, I am posting a small pastel painting I did at the Outer Banks in North Carolina last summer. I sure wish it was summer right now!

Portrait of Ebony

This painting, or oil sketch, is of a model "Ebony" from my Thursday night figure class. This one was hard to do. I'm not sure that I'm happy with it, but I like some aspects to it.

Two hour head study in oil

I did this painting awhile back - nearly a year ago to be exact. I go to a figure/portrait class every Thursday evening (one of the 'open session' - meaning no instruction - type of class). It was hard to race the clock, as I only had two hours to complete it, but it was tons of fun to paint!

This model is known to fall asleep during a pose. I'm thankful he didn't this time.

Floral Still Life-Sold

This is my first post on my new blog. This painting is a still life that I did awhile back. I sold it to one of my husband's co-workers, who loves flowers.
