I did two sessions at Studio 30 today, but my still life in the morning session tanked. Our model in the afternoon looked brooding and wore interesting clothing. I was off to a rough start and had to eradicate her completely a couple of times...I hung tough, however, and in the end I was pleased with the result. I sure loved the white of her tie against her dark shirt.
I have been drying my paintings at Studio 30 in a locker. I decided to take them all home tonight...but Za stopped me before I loaded them into the car so that I could have a one-man-show in the hall. The idea was to look at how my earlier paintings compare to now.
Everyone in attendance at my hallway exhibit agreed that I've painted some good ones and some bad ones, but the recent paintings (beginning last week) have by far been the best. (...thank you, Za Vue!)
To see all the paintings from today....go HERE!
