The next step
I have worked from the live nude periodically since the early 1970's. This blog started August 9th, 2012 in my second year of working almost exclusively from the figure.
In the fall of 2015 I reintroduced still lifes and an occasional cityscape into my painting repertoire. Rather than abandon this figure blog or start a new one I decided to add them to the conservation.
All drawings and paintings posted on this blog were done entirely from live models or on location.

August 9th marks the third anniversary of this blog. Anticipating the first and second anniversaries I composed posts specifically dedicated to the occasions. This summer has been so consumed with painting outside that the date snuck up on me. So with no burning issues in mind as I start my fourth year blogging I will just share an early "warm down" drawing from my recent expectant mother sessions.
Compared to three years ago I am in a very different place with regards to both my art and life in general. The fascination continues to be that each new door I pass through seems to invariably lead to more doors.
