Decorating with Figurative Art

I've heard people say that they like figurative art but can't necessarily see it working in their home. Here is the guest room that my wife put together in our home. She used paintings and drawings of dancers with spectacular my opinion! There's nothing like original art for making a room.

Gretel 2

Oil on panel, 16x20 of Emily T as Gretel. This is a continuation from the life drawings shown earlier. I loved the light on this one and tried to work with looser brush strokes than normal. The panel is gessoed Masonite. Detail of painting also shown.

Emily T as Gretel(Hansen and Gretel). Cool costume and great poses make for good drawings...well, at least that's the hope! This one is 10-12 minutes. Conte and pastel

Byrdtown Fields

Small painting of a scene near Hartsville, SC. I've done a number from this area over the years...Byrdtown. This is an 11x14 oil on panel. I had fun playing with the linear patterns in the fields.
