Pool Light

This is one from my series of nudes at the Columbia Art Gallery in Hood River, OR. I photographed my model almost 30 years ago and finally got around to painting this image a couple of months ago. I'm glad I waited because I think I did a bit better than I would have back then when the most I knew about oil was that most cars took about 4 quarts and it needed occasional changing. 12" X 16" oil on stretched canvas. SOLD

  1. I'm going to have to make a trip up the gorge to see these in person. They look that good.

  3. Hi Todd,
    wow, I love this painting. You will show the others from the nude series here also?

  4. Thank you Nicole. I may show one or two more, but probably not more than that; in this neck of the woods there is still a bit of an acceptance problem in some quarters.

  5. Forget the acceptance problem -- we need to see more of those nudes, Todd! Great piece!!

  6. Thanks, Eric. Another reason for posting one or two more is then the ones I think are best will have been shown. It's like in school, when you manage to get a good grade- then what? The only way is down!

  7. Wow - this is phenomenal! Love the break up of the figure by the water. Great painting!

  8. I guess if you painted this 30 years later, it's ok if I comment 5 months after you posted it. ;-) It's beautiful, graceful, calming, and captures the sense of weightlessness of the model.
