Waiting - Model in Black

Waiting — Model in Black

Oil, 24 x 18. I'm very pleased with this painting and with the way my figure painting is going in general. It reminds me more of Picasso and Modigliani than of modern or traditional portrait artists. Although I can do portraiture, it seems to me that people are too stuck on the way they "look in the mirror." Maybe the eye of the artist is needed to make this world a more lively and gracious place.

(Hummm. I'll have to do some self-portraits.)
