Katie Fans

Small crowd at drawing class but we were all "fans" of Katie C. This drawing shows her holding a fan and sitting on an un-drawn stool. The long tutu was bright yellow with black borders but this is as far as the 15 minutes would allow me.

This started as a painting of a bride running through a forest...seemed like a good idea at the time but it never panned out. I made some changes in the trees and added the female figure in red, sat on it for a while and here it is. Being alone in the middle of a large forest is an amazing experience...a little scary but a bit euphoric as well. 24x30.

Goin' Home

Final art for an earlier post. This painting is currently hanging in my Civil War show at Newnan's Centre for Performing and Visual Arts. A lone confederate soldier is wounded and cut off from his army. One way or the other he is going home, possibly very shortly. He's prepared to take someone with him with his Colt army revolver and his Bowie knife. Perhaps a last minute appearance by the cavalry will save him from certain death.
Oil on canvas...30x48.

Christina's World

Nearly finished painting from a previous life drawing(New Kid in Town). Model, Christina, posed for the class in a black tutu and took some really nice reclining poses, including this beauty. 20x30.
