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.
This is day one with Rene modeling for my sculpture class. This will be our final project. We'll work on these one more day and then make a cast from them. They are 24 inches tall. This has really been a lot of fun. — at Maine College of Art.
Tina Davis sat with her cello for my painting group. She played for a while and I snapped a picture so I could paint her arms in later. Her head moved to a slightly different angle while she played so I had to change that a bit.
These are the images from the end of day one and day two of Cait sitting for us at the Dana Warp "Mill Painters".
Shea week two. Next week we critique the work then tear the clay off the armature and start a new pose. I think it will be Shea again.
I'm taking a Continuing Studies figure sculpture class at MECA with John Ventimiglia. I've never worked with clay quite like this and it's so much fun. This was a model I've painted a couple times and it was great to try a new medium. He stands on a 6 foot round lazy susan and John gives him a bit of a turn every 10 minutes or so to give you a different aspect. You press the clay onto a wire armature that is mounted to the pipe that you see in the photo. So much fun!

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.
