This is my 100th post on this blog. It appears almost exactly two years after the first post. For some time I have been contemplating how to mark the occasion and then the topic became obvious. Over the last couple of months I have been re-visiting some other subjects with my painting, still lifes and flowers mostly. So, at least for now, the figure has taken a back seat. This shift in focus makes it a good time to take a hiatus from these posts.

I have no way of knowing how long this hiatus will last. I am acutely aware of having only scratched the surface regarding the human form. Hopefully the challenges other subjects provide will prove beneficial to future figurative work. If a topic regarding the figure proves irresistible I suppose posting will also.
