Well, I fell down the rabbit hole all day and now have uploaded my small paintings from this year too! This one is just so silly! I like the expression on his face. Most models develop a blank stare during poses. I also love his crazy hair!
Wow! Today I uploaded over a hundred images of paintings to my Flickr account. AND found out how to blog images directly from Flickr.
So here's one I did from life a few years ago and later sold on Ebay. The model was a rock climber I remember and had the most amazing expression on her face! Painted at Jim McIntyre's wonderful Hancock Rec. Center Saturday session in Austin, Texas.
I attended a great painting workshop with the brilliant British artist Paul Wright. His juicy, bold, bright , broken colour brushstrokes are inspirational! I loved painting in the college art-class atmosphere and did tons more work per day than I ever do at home! Does anyone else have this issue?

I have much more practice doing females than males! Models are Jorge (top) and Jean Pierre...both very handsome in that dramatic dark-eyed smoldering way!
