SAVE THE DATE- DEC 3rd- Fund Raising Benefit & Autumn Art Sale Event

Polo Green Painting in Progress

I am working on a new painting entitled "Polo Green Painting". I just finish pasting down the digital images onto the canvas. This is it's first state. The inspiration was the green photo backdrop paper I found. It's the color palette and control of the image.

Givenchy Painting

The Givenchy Painting was also completed this past week. Here is the final state.

Red Hat Nude - Final State Completed

I have finished the Red Hat Nude painting this past week. It's in its final state. I reworked the center area of the painting. I was not satisfied with it. It felt off balance and to heavy. I put a b/w camouflage image over the painted area. It brought the painting together with more of a balance.
