Moving Into Light


                                                Started with a silver pen that somehow took me to this.   I also focused on letting the background help shape the figures.

Warm Horizons

                                                    For some reason I am really into greys and neutrals.   This is going on an online gallery called Chairish.   We will see what happens.   Its hot in Charleston!

Figure Medley

    This is one model with four different poses.   The gestures were one minute so I painted later in my studio.   I like how this one stayed fresh and the limited palette feels calming.

Color Patch

                              Once in awhile things just work out.   New board that will take pencil and oil paint.  It is very smooth so I could  move quickly to keep the paint in flow and fresh.   Have to keep this for awhile to see if I can learn from it.
