Mirror Image

The title on this one has two meanings: it's a shot I took in the mirror and forgot to reverse in Photoshop, and it portrays the mirror image of my personality. (OK, I suppose a few might quibble with that.) This is the 2nd in a series I have in mind- it's been difficult to get volunteers to show exaggerated expressions AND catch them in good light. I'll be pretty busy during the next week or so- so probably nothing more for my blog for a couple of weeks. Those in the vicinity of Hood River are invited my artist's reception at The Gorge White House from 1-3pm on Sept. 5th. Also enjoy another group of my paintings during Sept. at Brian's Pourhouse while having one of their delectable dinners. 16" X 12" oil on canvas board.

Filtered Light

This is another from my series of nudes on display at the Columbia Art Gallery. Each painting (save one) is titled for the kind of light illuminating the subject. 14" X 11" oil on canvas. Available at the gallery.

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
