The next step

I have worked from the live nude periodically since the early 1970's. This blog starts 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 just add them to the conservation.

All drawings and paintings posted on this blog were done entirely from the live model.

Post-Truth

The Oxford Dictionary has designated "post-truth" as the word of the year. The general meaning being that we live in a time where what one believes to be true is more important than what facts may indicate.

For too many of life's endeavors it is difficult to quantify what is true or false. To my thinking, at least where the arts are concerned, questions involving truth speak to integrity. On occasion certain works simply ring true.
