Marie asked me to paint Stella as a wedding present for our friends son and his wife last summer. It took me a while to take it up but it's done and here it is.
This is one of the paintings. It's from earlier this summer. I was able to see some of the work hung for the sale. I heard there have been over 600 pieces submitted so I guess they aren't able to put everything out at once. The sale runs over a few days.
I'm back outside, here at Two Lights State Park. I was here two years ago on a very similar day. Beautiful, a little cool, while it was warm inland.
This is my latest painting of Lila save one. The last one I'm not sure if I might not go back into. But it is the last for a few months at least because she has had her baby and will be too busy. She has been a great model, very patient and calm.
Lila at 36 weeks. I'm not entirely happy with this painting, but I liked the chair and as choppy as it is her face is closer than in many of my attempts.

I am focusing on figurative work right now. I attend two groups and for the next few weeks I'm taking a sculpture class working from a model.
