"Six Forks" 6in x 6in oil

I got a bit carried away today with everything being even.    It is so hard to change what you have always done!   Making things even, making them match, making things line up...  everything tidy!
My dog hates it!    I am learning to relax.

"Little Red dress" 18in x 14 in oil

What were we thinking?   We had three lights sources on our model today.  It was an overcast day so the studio was just a little dark.   I turned on one track light overhead, then there was north light coming in on that same side then we turned on a soft 60 watt light for a reflected light on the darker side.  We have 5 people around one model so there is not much wiggle room.

"Moroccan Slippers" 6in x 6in oil

Now for something completely different!   I saw these shoes hanging on a friend's wall and I said "Oh, you should paint those."  She brought them to me and said "You paint them." Well, I spent an hour setting it up.   I started with them hanging since I thought they looked so cool when I first saw them.   I tried it with all kinds of backgrounds, tried them alone and with other props, different lighting (changing bulbs in the lights) and finally gave up on that idea and decided to try them on a surface.   I imagined they were on the floor after being worn.  It looked too plain so I went outside and cut off some peony leaves and put that in front of the light so they cast shadows over the shoes.  So if you didn't know what went into this view would you think they were just sitting on the floor of the porch?

"Two Peonies" 8in x 8in oil

These are the last of the Peonies.   They don't last long enough.   I am still working on making my brushstrokes looser.    There are so many petals on these flowers and I probably painted one tenth of them.   I am happy with the vase and reflection.

"Five Peonies" 8in x 8in oil

 I love the subtle color shifts on these peonies that I found at Trader Joe's.    Tonight I was almost ready to turn the lights out and fall asleep but I remembered that I had not posted this painting.  So now I am up way past my bedtime!
