Thoroughly 20's Laura

Model, Laura P, formerly Laura B, posed for the drawing class in 1920's attire. Beautiful dresses! Her poses were fantastic and were very much in keeping with the time period and character that the costumes were used for(plays). She even brought music to go along with the theme. Here are a couple of 12-15 minute sketches from the night. Conte and pastel. $225 each.

Last Stand Hill

This is a painting I did several years ago but never finalized it. Currently, in reality,there is an iron fence around the foreground markers that include George Custer's marker. I feel that the fence is a visual intrusion and chose to leave it out but never fully settled it in my mind. I'm currently seeking input from LBH followers...and anyone else that may choose to weigh in. View of the Little Bighorn valley from Last Stand Hill. 18x24 oil.

Laura H posed for the life drawing class. This 12 minute conte and pastel sketch was my favorite from the night.
