standing nude

standing nude 14 x 19 inches acrylic on canvas 2004
I enjoy the layering of color. Painting is a very physical act for me. I am literally wiping off as much as I put on and I rub the color down into the nooks and crannies of the heavy under paint. The results are always a bit of a fight, but when the battle is won, a beautiful object comes to life.

Soft Blonde

Soft Blonde 7.25 x 10.5 inches acrylic watercolor wash 2003
This is a acrylic on paper using a watercolor wash technique. I like the soft quality of the wash, and think that it works great with the soft feminine subject.
