"Hannah in a hat" 16" x 20" oil on linen

This was a 3 hour pose.  I wanted to keep it loose and free flowing.  She is a wonderful model.

"Peonies in Pink" 8in x 10in oil

With my glasses off, I painted most of this painting.   The tricky part is mixing the right color, value without seeing the palette very well.  At least I could see where the palette was!   I had lots of laughs and finished it with my glasses on!

Self portrait Demo #2 11" x 14" oil

My Tuesday class wanted to do their self portraits (they just can't be upstaged by the Monday class) so I did a second demo for them.   I know, it looks a lot like the one I did a couple of months ago, but there is one small difference.   The first one I did  I just happened to be on Percocet because I had smashed my finger (my non painting hand) so I had to have 6 stitches.   The demo had been planned for weeks so I had to do it.   I do think this one turned out better. ;-D

There are about 58 photos that one of my students, Stan Sternberg, took. To view the Demo please click here.

Here is the first demo that I did while on percocet and my eyes do look a little glazed...  And just to let you know, my finger is doing fine, the smashed bone is healed and there is just a scar.

"Roses and Ribbon 3" 8" x 8" oil

I feel that the roses came out pretty well in this painting.    They are in a silver mint julep cup and almost everyone here in Louisville Ky has one of these.   Mine came from my Dad and his initials are engraved on the cup.    I added a woven copper ribbon in the composition... it needed somehting...

Fallen leaf 8" x 10" oil

It was a struggle painting this one today.   At first I could not get a good composition on a square format so I went with an 8x10.   The surface was a slick masonite panel with a layer of very smooth almost shiny gesso.   So at first the paint was slick and showed the brush marks.   After I had blocked in basic color/value everywhere it was time for lunch.   That was the best thing because that allowed time for the paint to soak in a bit and when I came back from lunch it was easier to paint on.   Next time I will put on a layer of grey acrylic before painting.

"10 letter word for glasses" 8" x 8" oil

Crossword puzzles, what can I say...  My parents always had one or two in process.   It was something to do and use as a distraction when they were in the doctors office or hospital, then nursing home.   I miss working the puzzles with them.

"1960 Corvette" 6" x 8" oil

Sweet little car.   I would like to drive one but the closest I have come is to drive a Miata and that is no comparison.   The car I have now is the first automatic car I have owned.   I miss shifting gears and DRIVING a car.

"1956 Chevy Belair" 6" x 8" oil

Doesn't this car look like it is smiling?   I just love two tone cars, they are like spectator shoes.!   The Mini Cooper is and I wish they would make more cars in two colors!  Design wise it would make the cars more appealing... in my little opinion.
